For the gingerbread cookie dough

   450g multi-purpose flour
   220g butter/margarine
   220g Brown Sugar (Use only between 150g to 180g if you prefer less sweet cookies)
   10g cinnamon powder
  
4g salt
  15ml vanilla extract   


Procedure

Step 1: Mix butter/margarine, flour, sugar, cinnamon powder and salt until a uniform brown color is obtained.

Step 2: Add the vanilla then mix until you obtain a consistent non sticky final dough (you can mix with your hand or a robo mixer using the 'dough hook' accessory)

Tip: Depending on the temperature and/or humidity level in your environment, if your final dough obtained from step 2 is a bit sticky, add some more flour
(10 g each time). If on the contrary it is dry and grainy, add some milk or water (10 ml each time)...

Step 3: Use the Gingerbread House Template provided (See link below) to cut your different shapes (thickness should be approximately 8mm). Bake at 175 degrees Celsius (in a preheated oven) for 15 minutes or until your cookie dough starts to deepen in color (especially at the base).

Step 4: Use crushed candies if you want to add glasses to the windows (refer making-of!).

Step 5: Bake, decorate and most importantly, Have fun!!!


MERRY CHRISTMAS !

Catriona



 For decoration

Use All of your favorite sweets (Marshmallows/ Smarties/ M&Ms etc...) !!! Be creative ! there are no rules really for decorating your gingerbread house..

For the 'Glue' you can use 1 or all of the following:

Marzipan (Almond paste)
Marshmallow Fondant (Quick and easy recipe here)
Royal icing (Quick and easy recipe here)
*Tip: If you want your royal icing to be egg free, then follow my icing recipe for the 'Gateau Napolitaine'. Remember that d
epending on the temperature and/or humidity level in your environment, if your royal icing  obtained is a bit too thick, add some more water (2-3ml each time). If on the contrary it is too runny, add some more icing sugar (~5g each time)...
