Get creative in the kitchen with the kids with these delicious and spicy ginger cookies. The perfect teat time snack!


  • 125g butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup golden syrup
  • 2½ cups plain flour sifted
  • 2tsp ground ginger
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda


  • 1 egg white
  • ½ cup icing sugar sifted

How to:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric beater until light and creamy.
  3. Add the golden syrup, flour and bicarb, and mix to form a smooth dough.
  4. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until the dough is firm.
  5. Roll out the dough to about 4mm thick, between sheets of non-stick baking paper. Cut out shapes from the dough using a template or cookie cutter.
  6. Place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool while still on the trays.

To make the icing, mix the egg white and icing sugar until properly combined. Pipe “buttons” on the gingerbread cookies or spread some icing over the cookies and allow to set.
