How to Make Vickys Gingerbread Men with Christmas & Halloween Decorating Ideas

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 12 steps you must follow to make Vickys Gingerbread Men with Christmas & Halloween Decorating Ideas in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper/baking parchment
  • Step 2
  • Cream the butter and sugar together until light
  • Step 3
  • Add the syrup and mix in
  • Step 4
  • Mix the flour, baking powder and spices together and add to the mixture. Form a dough adding more syrup if required to bring it together
  • Step 5
  • Wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for half an hour
  • Step 6
  • Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 5/ 190C. Flour your surface then roll out your dough so it's 1cm thick and cut out your men with a gingerbread men shaped cutter or whatever shape you want to use. You get neat stamps you can press on instead of decorating with icing like those pictured above
  • Step 7
  • Place on baking tray and bake for 10 minutes - they should be firm but not browned
  • Step 8
  • Rest on tray a further 10 minutes then remove and set on a wire rack to continue cooling
  • Step 9
  • Decorate with piped icing. Let your imagination guide you. You could stick sweets to the icing for eyes or buttons! Hint: For Halloween make some headless, armless or legless by cutting off a leg or whatever and decorate with red icing near the 'injury', scary faces and pipe a skeleton out of icing onto the bodies. My son loves this!
  • Step 10
  • To make Xmas Stained Glass Cookies, follow the recipe but cut circles out of your main cookie shapes
  • Step 11
  • Bash some boiled sweets or lollipops with a rolling pin to breal them into smaller pieces and spoon into the holes in your cookies
  • Step 12
  • Poke a hole near the top of each cookie so when its baked you can thread a ribbon through and hang on your xmas tree or in front of your window
