Apparently Gingerbread Men are now called Biccie Boys, well according to the Smurf. It was all I could do to keep a straight face when he shouted with delight "biccie boy" when handed a gingerbread man last week.
So, should you want to join in the biccie boy joy....
Honey Biccie Boys
125g butter, softened
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 190 degrees
Using an electric mixer (or strong arm muscles and a wooden spoon) beat butter and sugar until light and creamy.
Add honey and vanilla and beat well.
Add egg and beat well.
Add flour and baking powder and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined. Gently knead the dough until smooth.
Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and rest in the fridge for half an hour. At this point you can freeze half the dough for later if you want.
Once dough has rested, roll it out between two sheets of baking paper to about 5mm thick. Use your biccie boy cutter to cut your biscuits and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
Share your Biccie Boys with your friends!
