Gingerbread House

Gingerbread House
Vegan, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Rice Free, Caffeine Free, Soya Free, Red Meat Free, Egg Free, Crohns, Coeliacs Disease & Endometriosis.

Gingerbread (Recipe)
Icing Sugar Glue:
9 Tbls Unrefined Icing Sugar
1-2 Tsp Water

First make a template for your gingerbread house, then cut out your shapes and cook on Gas Mark 5 for 10-15 minutes, turning the tray half way through to prevent over-cooking on one side.

Once you have cooked and let your gingerbread cool completely you can start creating your house.

To keep your gingerbread house crisp, store your gingerbread house pieces in an air tight container with baking paper in between each piece so they do not stick together, and make your house when you are going to eat it for the best results.

You will need a thick icing sugar for the glue of your house so mix your icing sugar and pop into a freezer bag and cut a little hole in one of the corners for a piping bag.

You need to pipe the icing glue onto both of the pieces you wish to be stuck together, press together the two pieces and smooth down to make a good seal and leave to dry.

Once your house has dried you can start decorating your house in which ever way you like.

Gingerbread (Recipe Here)
Mincemeat (Recipe Here)

 Pre-heat your oven on Gas Mark 5.

First make your gingerbread.

Roll out your gingerbread and cut out your circles ready for your muffin baking tin.

Cut strips of baking paper and place them under your circles before molding them into the tray, next place circles of baking paper into your gingerbread cases then pour clay beads onto the circles.

This is so the beads do not sink into your gingerbread.

Put them into the oven for 20 minutes checking them after the first 10 minutes and turn the tray.

Whilst your gingerbread cases are cooking, make your mincemeat.

When your cases are cooked, remove the beads, fill with your mincemeat and cover with a circle of gingerbread and press down on the edges and poke two holes into the top of each pie.

 Put back into the oven for 10 minutes until golden.

Now that your pies are cooked you can either devour them or pop them into a tight sealed container so they do not go soft.

Enjoy with coconut milk or thick coconut cream.

Next combine your mucovado (optional), chia seeds slurry, pure spread and minced ginger to your flour mix.

Now you have your dough cover the bowl with cling film and put it into the fridge for an hour.

You can now roll out your dough on to a piece of baking paper so that is easier to transfer to your baking tray otherwise your gingerbread will stick to your tray.

Set your oven to Gas Mark 5.

Put your tray full of your gingerbread men into the oven for 7-10 minutes depending on the size of your gingerbread men.

The big man will need 10-12 minutes.

The little men will only need 7-10 minutes.

Take them out, peel the men off of the paper and leave to cool.

Once hard you can decorate and hang them on your Christmas tree.
