Recipe: Gingerbreadmen

Christmas Cookies
December 12, 2011

GingerbreadmenIt was since I saw the first Shrek movie that I wanted to bake some gingerbreadmen, I bought online the gingerbread cookie cutters, and this year I finally baked them.

Gingerbreadmen can be decorated with frosting or sugar decorations, but I choose to bake simple cookies for breakfast.



100g honey
70g sugar
50ml milk
25g butter
300g flour 00
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix the flour with baking soda, cinnamon and ginger.
Beat the butter with the honey and sugar, then add the milk. Combine the solid ingredients and knead until mixture is smooth.
Roll up to an inch thick and cut with the gingerbread cookie cutters.
Bake in preheated 180° C (356 F) oven 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.
