Knowsley Hall gingerbread biscuits

Gingerbread is a fantastic Christmas treat. It tastes amazing and it is also great fun to make and is something you can involve the whole family with. Whether you are getting some help with the mixing and rolling or cutting shapes and decorating they're as fun to make as they are to eat!

A firm favourite with children and adults at Christmas. Not just for the taste either! They’re fun to make and creating the different shapes is all part of the fun. They’re at their best when you take them out of the oven just at the point they have a little squish to the texture. Then let them cool and they’ll be perfect for treating the family this Christmas.
