A lovely easy biscuit recipe from a friend!
Recipe is so easy, a blend of various recipes so things like xanthum gum may need tweaking and the amount of flour may need to be increased. This will make about 30 gingerbread men or 4 billion gingerbread dinosaurs. My opinion is more ginger and nutmeg is best which is why the quantities are quite high.
• 140g pure sunflower spread
• 100g dark muscovado sugar
• 3 tbsp golden syrup
• 350g Doves gluten free plain flour
• 1 tsp gluten free bicarbonate of soda
• 1.5 tsp Xanthum gum
• 3 tsp ground ginger
• 1 tsp ground nutmeg
• 1 tsp ground cloves
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment. Melt butter, sugar and syrup in a pan. Mix flour, soda, spices and xanthum gum in a bowl. Stir in the butter mix to make a stiff-ish dough.
Wait until cool enough to handle, then roll out dough to about 5mm thick. Stamp out gingerbread men, re-rolling and pressing the trimmings back together and rolling again. Lift onto baking sheets.
Bake for 10-12 mins until golden.
Cool 10 mins on the sheets, then lift onto cooling racks. Then continue until all done. Remember that these will spread a little in the oven so keep a bit of a space between them.
Keeps for about a week in an airtight tin, dough should freeze if made in quantity.
