Introduction: Easy Gingerbread Igloo

I personally am not a fan of very strong tasting ginger bread so I edited a sugar cookie recipe I had already to make a slightly milder but still very tasty gingerbread cookie dough and then made it in to this cute christmas scene. 

Easy Gingerbread Cookie Recipe 

250g of butter or margarine at room temperature

140g of caster sugar

1 egg yolk

2 tsp of vanilla extract

30g of muscovado sugar

2 tsp of ground ginger

300g of plain flour

Add in the butter and sugar to a big bowl, mix together and then add the egg yolk, vanilla, ginger and vanilla extract then mix again.  Sift the flour in to the mixture until it is nicely combined. If the mixture is too wet and not the consistency you want for the dough then just keep adding in flour till you get the consistency of a nice dough.

Pop in to the fridge and then take out as needed and press in to whichever shape you desire.

Cook in the oven at 180C/gas mark 4 for 15 minutes.

If you want to make the gingerbread igloo like I did then you will need a metal bowl. grease the outside of the bowl, turn it over and cover the bowl with gingerbread dough and cook as desired.

Finally decorate your little works of art as you wish!

Christmas Wishes!
