Gingerbread Men – Deliciously ginger-spiced cookies that are slightly soft on the inside, and crispy on the outside, and decorated with icing!
Gingerbread Men. The MUST-make cookies for Christmas. And today, I bring you my Gingerbread Men recipe!
Ingredients for Gingerbread Men:
- unsalted butter
- light or dark brown sugar
- molasses or black treacle
- plain/all-purpose flour
- baking soda
- ground ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg
For the icing, you’ll need:
- icing/powdered sugar
- vanilla extract
- golden syrup
This gingerbread recipe is a super easy one, that takes 10 minutes to throw together, and at least 3 hours in the fridge to chill before rolling and cutting into shapes. I like to leave my dough to chill overnight. Perfect for preparing the night before Christmas!
Pop them in the oven to bake for 9 – 10 minutes, and you’ll have perfectly shaped, delicious Gingerbread Men. Your kitchen will smell amazing with all the spices baking, too – bonus. 😉
Time to decorate them!
The dough stays fresh for up to 3 days in the fridge, and can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
