Last year, Master Frugal made the most amazing homemade Gingerbread wreath at school and it looked amazing! It looked that good that when I shared a photo of it on Instagram, I got about ten DMs asking me to blog about it. I tend to shut my laptop over Christmas though so I never got around to sharing it – until now!
I’m resharing this today as I’ve just made some homemade gingerbread biscuits using this recipe and have had a couple of DMs asking for the recipe.
This is our tweaked recipe from the version they made at school – ours has more ginger in as we love it and we added a cheeky bit of mixed spice to it too as we love our gingerbread very gingery.
At this stage, when I make gingerbread I would chill it in the fridge for at least two hours, removing it about ten minutes before I want to roll it out. This step was missing from Master Frugal's instructions - presumably because he only had a double lesson to make this in so he didn't have time for it but it turned out fab so you can do it my way or the quick way depending on how much time you have.
This is so much easier, so much prettier and because it’s less effort to make than a gingerbread house then you don’t even feel as bad when you break it apart to eat.
We’ll definitely be making another one of these this Christmas.
