Christmas Preparations: Golden Gingerbread Biscuits


We’ve been baking these delicious gingerbread biscuits for the past 6 years, shared by our very dear playgroup leader. They make such a welcomed gift to friends, family and teachers. An easy recipe to make with children, not overly sweet and a simple ritual to add to your annual festive season preparations. As always, try to source organic and local ingredients, and don’t worry about the mess….That’s part of the fun. Enjoy x

    Yours look so good Natalie, such a lovely colour. I've seen a few recipes with molasses but have never tried a recipe using it before I might have to give it a try next time. We made some just the other day the girls quite enjoyed themselves especially the icing of them:) x

    Hi Nat, they look great! I love gingerbread. Just leaving a response here to the sugar post you wrote earlier this year, and you mentioned de-stressing foods, incl. salt, sugar, starch etc- I thought I'd let you know that the kinesiologist consistently tests for me that I need more sea salt to calm my adrenals- apparently it's 1/4 tsp of salt per litre of water drunk. Just thought you might find that interesting 🙂 Merry Christmas to you xxx
