Ginger Bread Cookies

Christmas is a special time of the year and all houses are filled with festive spirit (and not to forget the smell of all the yummy bakes). Our Christmas tree is up and Our little one helped us decorate it with baubles. He even made a couple of baubles.

Christmas Eve - we set up cookies (yes this very same) and milk for Santa. We also kept some carrots for the reindeer. My little one was sooo excited about taking care of things for Santa :-)

Happy Birthday Jesus! Merry Christmas to all of you.

Did I tell you that my little one was in the kitchen doing every bit of this baking. I was just measuring out stuff and telling him what to do.. and ofcourse helping him do things he could not. But he is so happy to 'bake' with me :-)

I have made it without eggs


Flour 2.5 cups
Baking Soda 1 tsp
Ginger Powder 2 tsp
Cinnamon Powder 1/2 tsp
Butter 125 gm
Brown Sugar 1/2 cup
Golden Syrup 1/4 cup
Milk 1/4 cup

Method of Preparation

1. Sieve the flour,  baking soda, ginger powder and cinnamon powder into a bowl.

2. Add the butter to it and mix to get a crumbly texture.

3. Add the sugar and mix again.

4. Now add the golden syrup and milk. Mix to form a dough.

5. Refrigerate for about an hour.

6. Take out and roll the dough using a rolling pin.

7. Cut into shapes as required. I made a batch of ginger bread cookies and another of shape cookies. It would be a good idea to separate out smaller ones from larger ones as my ginger bread ones were ready a minute or so sooner.

8. Place them in a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

9. Preheat oven at 180C. Bake the cookies for 12-15 min. Cool on the tray for 10 minutes. Then cool on a wire rack for some more time.

10. Decorate once completely cooled.
