Woodland Animal Gingerbread

I didn't 'get' gingerbread until this year. But this year, I am loving it! I have even had a piece of dough grilled on the BBQ :) This recipe was super simple and I was worried it might not work, compared to some more complex ones out there. There was no reason to worry, however, as these biscuits had plenty depth of flavor. I used the same royal icing recipe from this post. Enjoy!

Gingerbread (adapted from Donna Hay Magazine Dec/Jan 2014)
125g butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup golden syrup
2 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  1. Cream butter and sugar for 8-10 minutes or until pale and creamy. Add remaining ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
  2. Roll out dough between two sheets of greaseproof paper until 4mm thick. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Grease baking trays.
  4. Cut out shapes from dough and place on trays, rerolling as necessary.
  5. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until golden. Turn off oven and allow to cool completely inside oven.
