With Christmas fast approaching we’ve started to do some festive baking. Our first foray (this year) into the world of Christmas yummyness was Gingerbread Stars. This recipe is really easy and bakes tonnes of biscuits – or 45 to be precise.
250g Plain Flour
2tsp Baking Powder
175g Caster Sugar
A few drops of Vanilla Essence
1.2 tsp Mixed Spice
2 tsp Ground Ginger
100g Clear Honey
1 egg, (separated)
125g softened Butter
125g Ground Almonds
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl.
Add the sugar, vanilla extrct, mixed spice, ginger, honey, egg yolk, milk, butter and ground almonds.
Bring the mixture together to form a soft dough, by stirring with a wooden spoon.
Use your hands to shape into a ball.
On a floured surface roll out the dough so it’s about 5mm thick and cut out biscuits.
Place on a lined baking tray and brush with beaten egg white.
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 180°C or until golden brown.
