Egg-free gingerbread biscuits

23 Nov 2022 • 0 min read

Traditional kids’ favourite gingerbread men get an egg-free twist.
Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes Makes 18-20 small biscuits


* Available at Holland & Barrett For the icing:
  • 50g icing sugar
  • A splash of water


Step 1 Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan. Step 2 In a small saucepan, melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup together gently. Step 3 Sift the flour and spices into a bowl with a small pinch of salt and then stir in the melted butter mixture and mix well until you have a stiff dough. Step 4 Allow the dough to cool and then roll out on a floured surface until it is about 5mm in height. Using a gingerbread man cutter, cut out as many gingerbread men as you can and transfer them to a lined baking tray. Step 5 Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until firm and golden. Allow to cool while you make the icing. Step 6 Combine the icing sugar with a very small amount of water, gradually mixing until you have a stiff icing that runs but holds its shape when drizzled. Fill a piping bag with a small nozzle and then the icing and pipe decorations onto your biscuits. Allow them to set and serve. Shop our Food & Drink range.
