I used to make Gingerbread Characters with my children quite often when they were young. It was a fun family activity. Now, I don’t remember when was the last time I made Gingerbread. Today I made these Gingerbread Flavoured Cookies. You don’t need any special ingredients such as Molasses and Dark Brown Sugar. These are simple cookies that have the Gingerbread’s flavour.
125g Butter *softened
1/2 cup Brown Sugar OR Dark Brown Sugar
1 large Egg
1 & 3/4 cup Self-Rising Flour
1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 180℃. Line 2 baking trays (OR 1 large baking tray) with baking paper.
- Beat softened Butter and Brown Sugar until smooth and well combined. Beat in Egg and mix well. Add Flour and spices, and mix to form a dough.
- Roll the dough into 24 balls and place on the prepared tray(s). You may wish to press down slightly.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
