I like to make gingerbread men with the kids from time to time. This recipe is easy and generally I have all the ingredients in the house.

Serves: 8 

  • 125g butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Cream butter and sugar until well combined then mix in the egg. Sift in flour, bicarb soda and ginger. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface adding more flour if necessary.
  2. Roll out dough thinly then use a shaped cutter or knife to create your men.
  3. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C.
  4. Place the men on a lightly greased tray and cook for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before decorating.
