Oh my goodness! It’s already December! I guess that means it’s time for some baking! Today I decided to make gingerbread biscuits to take to some parties I’ve been invited to as hostess gifts. So I dusted off Mum’s old recipe, assembled my tools,
pulled together my ingredients,
and combined them all together.
Once the dough had been mixed it goes into the fridge to firm up for rolling and kneading, this is the perfect time to wash up everything you’ve used so far, and sit down to enjoy your favourite cup of tea. Today I chose White Christmas by T2; I thought it was apt. *grins*
Out of the fridge and it’s time to make a really big and tasty mess!
In that special way that only I can, I ran out of baking paper after 2 trays and there were 4 trays of biscuits.
Out of the oven and left to cool,
it’s time to assemble more tools in preparation for icing the biscuits.
I use a disposable, zip lock bag in an attempt to stop the sticky sweet mess from spreading too far around the room!
And finally, the finished biscuits. All ready to be packaged up and tied with pretty ribbon, ready to be gifted.
I’ve decided that my rusty piping skills give the biscuits a “rustic” look. *grins*
