INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 437g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice 
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • Royal icing sugar
METHOD:
  1. In a large bowl mix the butter until it is soft and creamy. Add the brown sugar and maple syrup and mix until combined and creamy looking. Next beat in eggs and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and cloves together until combined. Split dough into two and wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge for 3 hours.
  3. Preheat over to 180 C. Line 2-3 baking trays with grease proof paper.
  4. Removed dough from the fridge. Generously add flour to your surface as needed. Roll dough to a 1/4 of an inch thick. Cut into shapes. Place shapes 1 inch apart on the baking tray.
  5. Bake biscuits for about 9-10 minutes.

  7. Once completely cooled you can now decorate how you like with icing sugar and sprinkles! Get creative!
