Gingerbread Bears, Hearts and Flowers

My mom needed something to treat the children. So I happened to flip to a gingerbread men recipe, which I had all the ingredients for but no cookie cutter template of men.
What's gingerbread men without the men? Anyways these turned out like ordinary cut-out cookies but the aroma of the ginger really feels up the kitchen when it's baking.
My mom absolutely adored these little cookies, but I look forward to hearing what the children think.

Gingerbread Bears, Hearts and Flowers
Makes 12-24

125 grams butter at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
2 1/2 cups of plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
3 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 cup golden sugar (I used honey)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Add egg yolk and beat to combine.
  3. Sift dry ingredients together, then stir into butter mixture with golden syrup (honey). Mix and combine until it resembles a dough, then knead gently on a floured surface until smooth.
  4. Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until about 3mm thick. Cut gingerbread cookies with cookie-cutters (continue rolling and cutting to make more), and then place in the oven to bake 10 minutes or until lightly golden.
  5. Decorate with desired toppings or icing sugar.

  1. i think these kind of cookies are your signature ^_^ cookies on sticks! =D awesome!!!

  2. I just thought it would be hygienic for kids to handle, and cookies on sticks kind of resemble lollipops too. Credit for this idea goes to Happy Home Baker..."cookies on sticks"...
