Miffy Gingerbread Bunnies

Miffy loves Christmas, and loves all the food that she gets to bake during the festivities! Why not try one of her favourite twists on a classic… gingerbread bunnies!

Ingredients

  • 225g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 heaped tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 1 tube of black icing
  • 1 bunny-shaped cutter

Method

STEP 1

Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5 and line a baking tray with baking paper. Sieve the flour, salt, bicarb, ginger, and cinnamon into a large bowl. Heat the butter, sugar, and syrup until dissolved. Leave the sugar mixture to cool, then mix into the dry ingredients to form a dough. Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 mins.

STEP 2

On a surface lightly dusted with flour, roll out the dough to a ¼-inch thickness. Stamp out the gingerbread bunnies with a cutter, then re-roll any off-cuts and repeat. Place your gingerbread bunnies on the lined trays, allowing space for them to spread. Cook for 10-15 mins, then remove from the oven and leave to cool.

STEP 3

Sift the icing sugar and then mix with 15ml of water until runny, yet thick and glossy. Make sure the ginger-bunnies have cooled down, then drizzle your icing over the top, covering it so that you can’t see any gaps.

STEP 4

Make sure that the icing has set before starting, but you can now bring your gingerbread bunnies to life, into lots of mini Miffy’s! Add her facial features; two dots and a cross for the nose on to the icing!
