These gingerbread Christmas tree biscuits are good for the planet and they’re really yummy, too. Get baking, gang!


How to make Christmas tree biscuits

What you’ll need…

250g unsalted butter
200g dark muscovado sugar
7 tbsp golden syrup 
600g plain flour
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
4 tsp ground ginger
Icing sugar
Rolling pin
Pan
Mixing bowl
Wooden spoon
Knife (and an adult!)
Baking sheets 
Ribbon or string
Sweets, sprinkles and food colourings for decorating


Step 1

First, preheat the oven to 200˚C. Then melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a pan.


Step 2

Now, mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ground ginger into a bowl. Next, stir in the melted butter mixture to make a stiff dough.


Step 3

On the baking paper, roll out the dough until it’s about twice as thick as a pound coin. Then, use the knife to carefully cut out cool Christmas shapes.

TOP TIP!
Always make sure you get a grown-up to help you in the kitchen!


Step 4

Bake the gingerbread shapes in the oven for 12 minutes and then leave them to cool. Now, with help from a grown-up, use the knife to carefully carve a hole near the top of each festive decoration. 


Step 5

Mix the icing sugar with water and smooth it over the shapes, then add some decorations. When your treats are dry, thread ribbon through the holes and hang them on the tree!
