Biscoff Gingerbread Men & Women by Taste.com

Ok - so there are two things I love.

Biscoff and Gingerbread. Put them together and you get a taste explosion.
Throw in some icing and sprinkles and that, my friends is Christmas joy!

Thanks to the Taste.com team, they have shared a wonderful Biscoff Gingerbread recipe for us to make at home!



What you will need!
125g salted butter, at room temperature
160g (½ cup) smooth Biscoff spread (I used crunchy spread as it was all I could find!)
100g (½ cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
175g (½ cup) golden syrup
1 egg yolk
450g (3 cups) plain flour
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Queen Writing Icing
Sprinkles
Cookie Cutters



I also purchased the writing icing from Woolworths to decorate the gingerbread, however on this link to the taste.com website they also have a recipe for Royal Icing

How to make it!

Step 1
Use a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment to beat the butter, Biscoff spread and sugar until pale and creamy.
Add the golden syrup and egg yolk - beat until combined.

  

Mix in the flour (you will see I seem to have got the steps a little mixed up here haha!), ginger, mixed spice and bicarb.



Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Knead each piece until smooth. Press into discs, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 2
Preheat an oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease 2 baking trays. Line with baking paper.

Step 3
Place a disc of dough between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll out to around 4mm thick.



Use a 12cm gingerbread man pastry cutter to cut out shapes. Arrange on prepared trays. Re-roll any remaining dough.

  

Step 4
Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with any remaining uncooked biscuits.



Step 5
The fun part - decorate those Gingerbread Men & Women!









We couldn't really taste the Biscoff, sadly, my Husband thinks this is because I used the crunchy instead of the smooth spread.

However they still tasted great and had the perfect ginger/spice taste that screams Christmas!



I would definitely make them again!

A fun activity to do with your little cherubs in the lead up to Christmas!

Enjoy and let me know if you make them!
