Lana's gingerbread for teacher gifts but unfotunately put in 2 tablespoons on bicarb instead of 2 teaspoons - bleh!!!! as i was out of ginger i decided to make the German cookies instead
they worked quite well. turns out the conversions to metric i had on the original recipe are WAY out! (1kg flour??!!! should be 450g lol) and i had to add a little xanthan gum for the gluten free version to work properly.
heat oven to 180/190'. line trays with baking paper
450g self raising or plain gluten free flour
225g brown sugar
1 tspn xanthan gum
1 tspn bicarb
1/2 tspn cream of tartar - ONLY if plain flour used
mix on speed 4-5 for around 10 seconds until well mixed and 'sifted'
add 225g soft butter
mix for around 10 seconds on speed 4 until breadcrumb like
add 50g treacle and 1 egg
mix for 2 minutes, closed lid, knead setting. you may need to give it a stir half way through.
using a well floured board and rolling pin, roll out to around 3mm and cut out shapes. place on trays and bake for 10-12 minutes.
with the original recipe you could join them with jam but i think these are a little fragile for that. you could definitely ice and decorate them like gingerbread though :)
