Peanut Butter Gingerbread

Ingredients

  • 5 heaped tbsp of Whole Earth Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 350g Plain Flour
  • 125g Butter
  • 175g Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 2tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Large Free Range Egg
  • 3 ½ tbsp Golden Syrup
  • Pinch of Salt

Method

  1. In a bowl mix the flour, ginger, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda together.
  2. Next add this mixture into a food processor and then add the butter and Whole Earth peanut butter and mix well.
  3. Add sugar into the mixture in the food processor and blend.
  4. In a bowl, lightly beat the egg and golden syrup together and then add to the food processor and gently mix until the mixture clumps together making a dough.
  5. Remove the dough and briefly knead out until smooth. Wrap the dough in cling film and leave to chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  6. Next, pre-heat the oven to 180c and line two baking trays with grease-proof paper.
  7. Roll the dough out to a ½ cm thickness on a lightly floured surface. Using a cutter cut out the gingerbread men shapes and place on the baking tray – remember to leave a gap between each one!
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven and leave on the tray for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Note: If you are feeling adventurous once cooled you can decorate using icing sugar and cake decorations!
