My wee girl loves cutting out biscuits so I’ve been making a few different recipes up. These ones are really simple and contain no refined sugar. I tried it with wholemeal flour too which did work but they are a bit too crumbly to keep your sanity entirely intact when rolling out! We used ginger in these but you could replace with more Christmassy spices or even vanilla instead.
I used @sweetfreedomuk to sweeten these. I have a few different syrups in my cupboard but this is the one I use most and it is really easy to find in the supermarkets here.
180g Self Raising Flour
1 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
60g Mild Coconut Oil, melted
60g Fruit Syrup @sweetfreedomuk
1 tbsp Oat Milk
Mix the flour and ginger together. Make a well in the middle and pour in the melted coconut oil and Fruit Syrup. Mix together with a spoon and gradually mix in the flour. You may have to ditch the spoon and use your hands. When it is all coming together add in the milk and knead until smooth. If the dough is too crumbly then just add a little more milk. Roll out on a floured surface to about 5mm thick and cut out shapes. If you are rolling out for the second or third time and it is too crumbly then just crumble into the bowl, add a little more milk and knead in until smooth. Then re-roll and cut out more shapes.
Bake on greased baking sheets for about 5-8 minutes at 180C until the edges are just beginning to brown. Leave to cool on wire racks.
2018 resolutions: spend more time in the kitchen // make more memories with loved ones // be more intentional with my time ⏳🗓️ @mydaycraft #daycraft#myinstax
Is there anything better than mini bread puddings spiced with cinnamon and hot chocolate on a snowy day? Maybe having my Christmas shopping done, which I'll try to finish early next week. With presents, parties to go to and to host, expenses tend to add up. So far everything is under control with my @pcfinancial World Elite MasterCard which allows me to redeem my PC points and put them toward gifts or groceries, and with no anual fee, you get more for less👌🏽 What about you guys? Have you finished your Holiday shopping yet?
What was your favorite thing to do when you were a kid? ✨ For me, it was either drawing or running fast. I kinda felt happy like that when I was piping these. ✨ #nationalcupcakeday

🌬❄️ WINTER WONDERLAND CAKE I’m not a snow-lover by any means, but usually we have at least a little snow by now here in Utah! Still dreaming of a winter wonderland, and all the goodies that made this cake simply beautiful. What are we all baking this week?! I’ve loved seeing all your white chocolate dipped ginger cookies! Thinking I need to make another batch asap! 😍 #bakingwithblondie
Thankful for this day ... when the world stops spinning for a few hours, the champagne flows and the room radiates pure joy. What a tradition and a gift you’ve given us Mandy #bakingday#Repost @amandaalvaro ・・・
My favourite day. My favourite tradition. My favourite women (minus a few out-of-towners). Twelve years strong. It’s kind of a Christmas miracle ;) 🎄 💫 🍪 #bakingday2017
🙋🏽♀️Hope you're enjoying a perfectly lazy Sunday!! ⠀
Got our groceries for the week thanks to @postmates 🙌🏽 - only somehow we ended up with 3 bags of apples instead of 1. 😳 I’m all about fiber, but we’d never crush that many apples in one week. 🙈 ⠀
So, what’s a girl to do? 😏🤔⠀
BAKE BREAKKKK! 🙌🏽👩🏽🍳💃🏽⠀
My fave distraction 🤷🏽♀️🙈😂⠀
Have no fear, I was still able to get some planning/prepping for the week done while this baby baked.✏️📒 Anyone else planning/baking today? 🙋🏽♀️👩🏽🍳🍏🥧🍎⠀
