Gingerbread Biscuits

German Honey Ginger biscuits



100g Honey

80g Unsalted Butter

250g Plain Flour

100g Almond Flour

1 Tsp Baking Powder

1 Tsp Bicarb Soda

1 Tsp Cinnamon

½ Tsp Ground Nutmeg



Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Melt the honey and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Once completely melted, pour the mixture over the dry ingredients.

Mix with spoon until combined, then continue by hand.

Turn out mixture on floured work surface and knead by hand.

If mixture is too sticky, add flour 1 tablespoon at a time. If dry and cracking, add small amounts of melted butter.

Let mixture cool (you may need to refrigerate if room is warm). In the meantime, preheat oven to 175 Celsius – fan forced.  roll out mixture on floured surface to approximately ½ - 1 cm thick.

Cut out shapes using cookie cutters and transfer to baking tray covered in baking paper.

Bake in over for approximately 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them as they brown quickly.
