I love the smell of freshly made gingerbread cookies even though I’m not a big fan of ginger itself. I found this lovely recipe from ChocolateSuze and it was a definite winner among friends and family, it’s perfect and you can bake it to your liking! Like your gingerbread crunchy? Leave it in the oven a bit longer! Love it soft like I do? Take it out earlier!

5. Place a baking paper on the table and place dough on top. Place another baking paper on top and roll flat until about 5mm thick (or preferred thickness).

6. Use a cookie cutter until the entire dough has been cut. If you find the dough quite soft, you can leave it out to firm up for around 30 minutes or into the fridge or freezer for around 10-20 minutes.

7. Gently, remove excess dough and use a palette knife or a flat thin utensil to lift the cookie from the baking paper and onto a lined baking tray 2 cm apart.

8. Place in the oven for 6 minutes or until the edges have slightly browned. You can leave it in for a minute or two longer if you prefer firmer, crunchier gingerbread.
