Gingerbread Men Recipe

Delicious gingerbread men cookies for this Christmas.


  • 175g soft brown sugar
  • 350g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 4 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100g butter


  1. Mix thoroughly the flour, spices and sodium bicarbonate.
  2. Rub the butter continuously until it resembles the look of breadcrumbs.
  3. Pour in the sugar.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the golden syrup and the egg in a separate bowl. Add the mixture in the dry ingredients that have been previously set aside.
  5. Mix well until a dough is formed. Knead the dough in a clean surface until it has softened and became smooth.
  6. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
  7. Roll out the dough to approximately 5mm. Use different shapes of cookie cutter to cut the dough. In case you want to make a décor out of them, you can punch a hole using a straw.
  8. Lay the formed dough in a baking tray and bake for at last 15 minutes or until they have turned golden brown.
  9. If the hole has closed, you can re-cut while allowing the cookies to cool. You can put a thread or a yarn for hanging as a Christmas tree décor.
