I am not really one for cooking a lot but last week when I had some home time I decided to have a scan through the cooking book and see what I could make with the monkey. Eventually it was decided that we were going to make gingerbread creatures.

What you will need:
  • 100g Butter / Margarine
  • 100g Dark Soft Brown Sugar
  • 2 table spoons Golden Syrup
  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 2 table spoons Ground Ginger
  • a baking tray or two (line with baking paper so they don't get stuck)
  • shape cuttersĀ 
  • 1 mixing bowl
How to make it:
  • Cream the butter and sugar, until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the golden syrup.
  • Stir the flour and ground ginger into the bowl as well.
  • Knead the dough on a flat clean surface, sprinkle flour to stop it sticking.
  • Roll out the dough when firm.
  • Use cutter to create your shapes and place on baking tray.
Cooking time:
  • 10 minutes in a preheated oven of 190c
I decided I was going to ice the gingerbread creatures, though it is your choice. I made the icing simply by mixing icing sugar and water. Some left white and another batch I added blue food colouring. Then used pre-brought icing pens for the patterns.
