  • In a bowl, mix together sifted flour, sifted sugar and gingerbread spice mix.
  • Add the egg, butter and honey. Using your hand combine all the ingredients together until you form sticky dough.
  • Place the dough in a plastic bag and refrigerate overnight.
  • The following day take the dough out. Roll it thin and cut out any shapes you like.
  • Bake at 350°F/180°C for 10 minutes.


Plastic Bag - Zip-lock bag is a great choice but cling film can also be used.
Optional - To get a really shiny look on your gingerbread cookies, shortly before they are ready (about 8 mins into baking) take the cookies out & brush with egg wash.
