Gingerbread

In time for Gingerbread Houses!

125g Olivani
3/4 cup golden syrup
1 cup sugar
3 cups plain flour
2 tablespoons ground ginger
3 tablespoons ground mixed spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons soy milk


Preheat the oven to 170C.
Melt the olivani, golden syrup and sugar in a large pot and bring to the boil. It's important to let this boil rapidly for a few minutes and stir as it boils. This makes sure the dough is smooth and easy to work with.
Sift the flour, ginger and mixed spice into a large bowl.
Pour the melted olivani mix into the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Mix the baking soda and milk in a cup.
Pour into the dough, stirring well.
Cover the bowl with glad wrap and let sit for 15-20 minutes.

Roll out handfuls of the dough on lightly floured pieces of baking paper.
Cut into whatever shapes you like. Remember to leave room between the shapes of dough as it will slightly expand while baking.
Slide the baking paper with the cut out dough onto baking trays and put in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Let cool on a wire rack.
