Gingerbread Man






Merry Christmas everyone! Ho ho ho!!! After a long break here I comes with Gingerbread Man cookies while still celebrating Christmas holiday!
Another fun activity with my cutie son on this special occasion.  He did enjoy this activity from the beginning till the end. Importantly he proudly showed to his father and enjoyed his teatime with own made cookies.

Ingredients :
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
150 gm butter
1/2 bicarbonate soda
1 tbsp. ginger powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt

Preparation Method:
Mix flour, soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger powder together in a mixing bowl. Oops don't forget to add salt too.
Add butter and sugar in a separate bowl and beat till combine. Add an egg and continue to beat till uniformly combined.
Now add the flour and spices mixture gradually till to becomes cookie dough.
Refrigerate in a cling wrap for 30 minutes. Since my son don't have such patience I did not refrigerate. Its better to keep in a chiller for 30 minutes or more for better taste.
Roll out to 1/4 thickness on a lightly floured surface and use gingerbread cutter to cut out the cookies.
Bake in preheated oven about 170 degree C for 15 to 20 minutes.
Cool in wire rack before frosting with icing sugar.
