Easy Gingerbread Cookies
These easy Gingerbread Cookies taste just like gingerbread men minus all the work of rolling and cutting. I’m not a big baker and definitely not a cookie decorator, so I like to keep things simple. And if you, too, are looking for easy ways to decorate cookies, I’ve got you covered. Just dip the top of each cookie in simple icing, and you’ll have a batch of cookies decorated in no time!
This recipe keeps ingredients simple and is easy to prep and bake. It is also a great family project where anyone can help, even the little ones. I love to make a batch of these on Christmas Eve and get my kids decorating them. These cookies will fill your home with holiday scents of warming spices that are sure to bring comfort and joy.
To make these holiday Gingerbread Cookies, you will need the following ingredients:
Steps to make Easy Gingerbread Cookies
Heat oven and prepare cookie sheets
Heat golden syrup, sugar, and butter
Combine dry ingredients
Combine egg yolk and golden syrup mixture
Mix with wet ingredients
Roll dough into balls
Bake the cookies
In a large heatproof bowl, combine 1 cup powdered sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla essence, 1 teaspoon butter, and 1 ½ tablespoons milk or as needed to form a paste. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Heat, stirring with a metal spoon for 3-5 minutes or until smooth. Remove the saucepan from heat, but leave the bowl with icing in it to keep it runny.
One of my favorite cookies! Thanks for sharing!
