THIS RECIPE FIRST APPEARED IN MY 2016 ADVENT CALENDAR.
Not only are these gingerbread men delicious and nutritious (when made with this recipe), but they are so much fun to make with the little ones. They make excellent end-of-year gifts for the teachers and if you thread some string through them, they can even be used as decorations for the Christmas tree (although they probably won’t last that long!)
With the cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger… they just smell and taste like Christmas!
Makes 40 gingerbread men
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Baking Time: 12 minutes
This recipe is taken from my book and makes an excellent icing for cupcakes too.
The quantity made here is for cupcakes, so for the gingerbread men you could easily half this recipe.
If your gingerbread men are not going to be eaten up in a couple of days, store them in the freezer to prevent them from becoming “soggy”.
Ready for the oven.
You know what they say, “waste not, want not”! When there’s not enough dough left for a gingerbread man, roll it into a “snake” and cut off mini round cookies.
Ready to be iced.
