Step 4: Imprint the dough

For just a little extra authenticity you can use a (cleaned, washed) fossil to make impressions in the dough.  (This is a pyritised Ammonite I collected at Charmouth in Dorset)

If you can't find a suitable fossil for this, you might be able to find a rubber stamp in a craft store, or make a model out of air-drying clay to use.
<p>As someone who has a diploma in culinary arts and a degree in geology this is my perfect recipe!! I love it :) Thank you for sharing</p>
If I wasn't allergic to gingerbread I'd so make this, great job it's both fantastic &amp; adorable as hell.
Is it the spices you're allergic to? If so - you could try a different flavouring (a tablespoon full of cocoa powder maybe)
I'm not sure, it's just when I eat gingerbread my throat tightens up to a point where I can't breath it sucks.
Brilliant idea - must try this. Looks delicious too.
The geologist in me couldn't help but give this 5 stars. Really fun looking, and no doubt delicious. A plus!
Love this... welldone :)
What a clever idea, and so well executed!
