GINGERBREAD MEN from 52 Weeks of Treats by Serena Faber Nelson with Sarah Dickerson
Festive cheer for your ‘Naughty or Nice’ Pup!
3 Cups Wholemeal Flour
½ Teaspoon Cinnamon
½ Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1 Tablespoon finely chopped Ginger
1 and ¼ Cups Water
¼ Cup Olive Oil
½ Cup Molasses
2 Tablespoons Honey
Pre-heat oven to 180 Degrees Celsius (350 F). Line a flat baking tray with baking paper.
1. Get two large bowls. In one bowl combine ¾ cup water, olive oil, molasses and honey. In the second bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, cloves and finely chopped ginger.
2. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet. Mix until all are combined. Slowly add the remaining ½ cup of water until the mixture forms a dough. Discard remaining water.
3. Divide the dough into two, wrap and refrigerate for minimum 3.5 hours.
4. Once chilled, remove dough from refrigerator and roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness.
5. Use a Gingerbread Cookie Cutter to cut out the biscuits. Place on a flat tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden. Place on a baking rack to cool, then serve.
Makes approximately 20 Gingerbread Men.
HANDY HINT: Once the biscuits are cooled you can decorate with drizzled carob or melted yogurt drops if desired.
