Ingredients: Vickys Giant Gingerbread Men, Christmas Special

  • 80 grams soft brown sugar
  • 100 grams sunflower spread / softened butter
  • 60 grams golden syrup
  • 225 grams plain / gluten free flour blend
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum if using a gluten-free flour blend

  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg or mixed spice
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

How to Make Vickys Giant Gingerbread Men, Christmas Special

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 18 steps you must follow to make Vickys Giant Gingerbread Men, Christmas Special in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Use my size guide picture below to draw a gingerbread man shape on a piece of parchment paper. Cut it out and set aside........
  • Step 2
  • I made a centre line 12.5 inches tall and divided it into 4 sections. The head section is 3.5 inches long and the other 3 are all 3 inches. I made the hands tip to tip 9 inches apart so from the centre line to the end of each hand is 4.5 inches. I used a coffee mug as a guide to draw the hands and feet circles and eyeballed the rest. You could perhaps print my pic and blow it up to trace it
  • Step 3
  • Cream together the butter and sugar, good exercise for the kids lol
  • Step 4
  • Mix in the golden syrup (you can use 40g corn syrup plus 20g treacle if you can't get or don't have time to make golden syrup but the flavour will be a lot flatter so you'll need to add extra spice to compensate)
  • Step 5
  • Mix the xanthan gum and baking powder into the flour then add the flour and spices to the creamed mixture
  • Step 6
  • Form a soft dough. If using a gluten free flour blend you may need extra flour, just add more accordingly. You may also like to add a half tsp vanilla extract
  • Step 7
  • Knead it smooth then put the dough on top of a sheet of parchment paper and start to pat it out into an oval or rectangular shape
  • Step 8
  • Place another sheet of parchment paper on top then roll out so it's 1cm thick. It should be a little bit bigger than the 12.5" x 9" gingerbread man template
  • Step 9
  • Slide the parchment paper and dough onto a baking sheet and chill flat in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • Step 10
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to gas 5 / 190C / 375°F
  • Step 11
  • Slide the dough with parchment still underneath off of the baking sheet and put on top of a cutting board. Take the top layer of parchment paper off. Put the template you cut out over the chilled dough. Cut around it with a sharp knife, removing the excess. Set that aside for later, you can re-roll it and cut smaller cookies from it, just bake for 6 minutes at the same temperature or freeze it for another day
  • Step 12
  • Move the gingerbread man back to the baking sheet using the parchment underneath to lift it and line the sheet at the same time
  • Step 13
  • Bake for 15 minutes then let cool completely on the baking sheet
  • Step 14
  • When cooled, decorate as you like with piped icing, sweets, raisins, chocolate chips etc
  • Step 15
  • To give as a gift, cut another template out of card to use as a backing board so the cookie can be supported and carried easily and place in a large cellophane bag tied with a festive bow
  • Step 16
  • This recipe makes 1 giant gingerbread man with enough dough left over for 2 normal sized ones
  • Step 17
  • You can make a big reindeer or snowman like these in the recipe linked below that I did last year, with a small amendment to the template - leave off the santa hat lol
  • Step 18
  • ...and this recipe link includes directions for the stained glass cookies I mentioned in my review
