Stained Glass Gingerbread

  I’ve always thought that ‘stained glass’ window biscuits with their jewelled sugary centres are the most beautiful cookie around, and without doubt perfect for Christmas. Traditionally made to adorn Christmas trees, where the fairy lights can glitter through the colourful centres, they’re also delightful as an extra special Christmas treat to eat. I don’t…

Gingerbread Welsh Cakes

I’m very fond of Welsh Cakes, I think they’re under-appreciated and overlooked in the world of teatime treats, unless you’re in Wales that is! They’re basically a little griddle cake or drop scone, usually subtly spiced and filled with dried fruit. Here is a rather tasty Autumnal version from me, bringing the warming spices of…

Gingerbread Spiced Swirl Buns

I reckon it’s about time to get a little bit festive and Christmassy round here – I’ve got so many ideas which have been simmering away since last Christmas and I just didn’t get time to action, and despite all my best intentions to be prepared, there’s just something that prevents me from Christmas cooking…

They’ve since gone…

Gingerbread Ghosts

I can’t say this is a new recipe – I blogged about it when I first started writing and had forgotten what a fantastic recipe it is until linking a twitter buddy to it the other day. All I can say is that this gingerbread recipe ROCKS – it provides all you could want from…

Christmas Gingerbread Biscuits

Gingerbread biscuits are the epitome of Christmas cookies. These are simple roll out cookies, ideal for using those cute Christmas cookie cutters (I’m getting quite a collection now) and they look beautiful with a bit of white icing. Stamp a hole and thread with a pretty ribbon to hang on the Christmas Tree. Christmas Gingerbread…

Gingerbread Olympic Medals

Wow, what an experience! The London 2012 Olympics were completely amazing – the atmosphere was awesome and definitely gave everyone a definite feel-good factor. We feel so lucky that we managed to experience the stadium and Olympic Park – I think we’ll all remember this summer for a long time to come. Tonight is the…
