Loved this recipe! Here's some helpful info if you're American though: 125g of butter is roughly 1/2C plus 1T. We also don't have golden syrup here so I used 1/4C of Molasses instead. After reading the comments, I added more spice too: 1/4t each of allspice and ground cloves. Baked at 350 for 9 minutes. Perfection!
This is the best gingerbread ever!! And the only recipe I could find that didnt need molasses. Awesome, thank you :)
This cookies recipe is so easy and delicious. I have tried many different recipes for Gingerbread, this was by far my best experience. They look as great as they taste, that is my favorite part. I made them with my kids and the had a blast making pretty cookies!
