Ingredients

  • 250g Flour
  • 75g softened Kerrygold Pure Irish Salted Butter
  • 75g Light Muscavado Sugar
  • ½  teaspoon Bread Soda
  • 50g Golden Syrup
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Ginger

Directions

 
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Using a mixer, beat the Kerrygold Butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  3. Introduce the golden syrup and egg yolk to the butter and sugar mixture and blend well.
  4. Combine all dry ingredients (flour, bread soda and spices) and sift into the bowl and blend until the mixture starts to resemble breadcrumbs.
  5. With your hands, shape the dough in to a ball. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for approx. 30 minutes before using.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, thinly roll out dough and use gingerbread man cutters to cut out shapes. Place on an oven tray lined with a baking sheet leaving a space between each.

  8. Once completely cool, decorate as you please!
