We had some really fantastically decorated gingerbread people, I think this is Goldilocks!
And this is definitely Harry Potter!
Honey Gingerbread Men (from The Guardian)
150g soft brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp fresh ginger, finely grated
100g unsalted butter
1½ tsp baking powder
400g plain flour
pinch of salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 160C. Put the sugar, honey, cinnamon, ginger and butter in a pan over a low heat, stirring to dissolve, then slowly bring to the boil and remove from the heat. Cool to room temperature, then mix in the baking powder.
Sieve the flour into a bowl with the salt. Make a well in the middle and pour in the syrupy mixture, followed by the egg. Stir from the centre, until the flour becomes a dough. If the dough is dry or crumbly, add a little milk, 1 tbsp at a time, until the dough comes together. Knead it gently to bring it all together. Flatten it into a disc shape, wrap in parchment paper and rest in the fridge for 30 mins.
Roll out the dough until it's ½cm thick. The thicker the biscuit, the chewier it will be. Cut into shapes. Use a skewer to make holes for eyes and buttons.
Lay the gingerbread men on lined baking sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes.
