DSC_0332

Welcome to my blog! This is the last Christmas DIY, which I’m both excited and upset about. Excited, because Christmas is just around the corner, and upset, because I had so much fun capturing these photos and inspiring you. Hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I did. I’m definitely making more in the future! As for today’s DIY – I have a gingerbread biscuit recipe for you – something you can do with your whole family!

What you’ll need (for 30-40 biscuits):

  • 2 ½ tea cups of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tea cup of butter (125 g)
  • ⅔ tea cups of honey
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • ½ tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of ginger powder
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • Biscuit shapes

The first step is to sieve all the dry ingredients (the flour altogether with the baking soda, baking powder, ginger powder and cinnamon) into a bowl.

At the same time put the butter and the honey to melt (heat the butter in order to turn it into a liquid).

Break the two eggs and add them to the honey and butter. Whisk.

Mix and whisk the dry ingredients with the liquid ones. You get a yellowish coloured dough.

Now it’s a good time to heat your oven to 180 dregrees. You can also put the baking paper onto your tray.

Biscuit shape time! After you’ve rolled out a part of your dough, make your biscuit shapes!

After you’re done, put them onto the tray carefully and put them in the oven for 7-8 minutes.

If you want, you can stop here, but if you are more determined like me, you can continue with the icing. I used a cake icing that simply needs some water and it’s done. You can colour it with icing colouring and basically let your creativity lead you! Good luck!
