Our lovely neighbour Frank made these fabulous gingerbread people. Thanks for the guest post!
Makes: 10 biscuits
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Ingredients: 50g vegan marg, 50g granulated sugar, 50g self-raising flour, 50g oats, 1 tsp Golden Syrup, 1 tsp boiling water, ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda, 3 tsp ground ginger, Icing sugar for dusting
To make the gingerbread people, I preheated the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4, and greased the baking tray.
Then, I creamed the soya spread and sugar together until fluffy, then added the golden syrup and ginger (I think you could add more or less ginger, depending on how much you like it!). I mixed the oats and flour into the mixture, then stirred the bicarbonate of soda into the boiling water, and added this to the mix. The mixture was pretty wet, but easy to roll out once covered in a light dusting of flour.
I cut out my gingerbread people shapes and placed them onto the baking tray. I cooked them for around 20 mins, turning them at around 10 minutes in.
Once cooked, I let the biscuits cool before decorating them with icing, raisins, cranberries, and cherries.
