Gingerbread Men Biscuits

These gingerbread men are super easy to make and are vegan!

It was never a tradition for myself or my family to make gingerbread men every Christmas, but as I've gotten older I've found myself wanting to make them every year. Not only do I love the taste, the snap of the biscuit, perfectly dunked in tea (essential to dunk all biscuits no?) the spicy ginger, I do love decorating them as tedious as it may be. do they all look the same? Absolutely not. Could I improve my soya icing skills? 100% yes. But that's all the fun of it. This tradition I do solely by myself, I'm not surrounded by creative bakers but that doesn't stop me having a little fun. And why can't traditions be done alone? Nevertheless, gingerbread men are so much fun done with others, especially if you have children, nieces, nephews, friends etc. It's the perfect day for some festive fun! The fact that the biscuits are vegan means that they're even simpler to make and you wouldn't be none the wiser.

Recipe

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Serves: 28 biscuits with a 5cm cookie cutter - may make ore or less depending on the size of the cutter

NOTE: every ingredient I use is vegan so make sure you check your ingredients if you're following a Vegan lifestyle.

Ingredients

100g Plain flour
80g Caster sugar
10g Ground ginger
1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
60g Golden syrup
40g Vegan butter
Vegan royal icing for decorating - I use this recipe

Method

✿Preheat the oven to 160 and grease and line a large baking tray. 
Melt the butter and golden syrup together in the microwave. 
In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix. Then add the butter/syrup mixture and mix well till a dough is formed. 
Dust the work surface with some flour and roll the dough out to 3mm thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out cookies and place onto the lined baking tray.
Bake for 10 minutes but no longer as they can burn really easily. Leave to cool on a wire rack before decorating. There are lots of decorating ideas on Pinterest that are really easy to copy and look amazing. I went for something simple but try different techniques :) Enjoy!
