This year, I thought it would be nice to have some edible gingerbread snowflake decorations on our Christmas tree.
Unfortunately my eldest wasn't as keen, stating it was torture seeing them hanging from the tree and not eating them all!
They are simple to make and work best if you make them thin. I had a couple of fat ones that were a bit too heavy and fell on the floor.
Gingerbread Snowflake Decorations
- 350g plain flour
- 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 2tbsp ground ginger
- 100g butter
- 150g muscavado sugar
- 4tbsp golden syrup
- To decorate:
- Icing sugar
- Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger, butter ,sugar, golden syrup and egg together to form a dough.
- Place in the fridge to harden
- Roll out and cut star shapes
- Make a hole in the top of each with a skewer or a straw
- Bake at 180C until golden brown
- When you take the biscuits out of the oven use a skewer to make sure the hole hasn't closed up.
- When cool tie ribbon around so that they can be hung up.
- Mix icing sugar with a small amount of water and place in a piping bag with a small circular nozzle.
- Ice, to give a snowflake effect.
