Christmas is just around the corner and making gingerbread cookies is a fun cooking activity you can enjoy with kids of all ages.

Make a simple dough, roll it out and then let all creativity go loose. Turn the traditional gingerbread man up-side-down and you will get a reindeer instead. We think this is pretty clever, fun and tasty.

Time: 60 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Medium

250g butter
200g brown sugar
250ml golden syrup
2 eggs
750g plain flour
2 tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoon mixed spice
2 teaspoon bicarb soda
300g pure icing sugar
2 drops blue liquid food colouring
50 red chocolate smarties

Preheat the oven to 180C.
Separate the egg whites and the egg yolks.

Use an electric beater to beat the butter and brown sugar.
Add egg yolk and golden syrup and beat until combined.
Follow by stir in the flour, ginger, mixed spice and bicarb soda.

Add flour, ginger, mixed spice and bicarb soda and combine.
Knead the dough until smooth..
Cover with clingwrap and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, beat 2 egg whites until they are soft peaks.
Slowly add the icing sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

Divide the icing among 2 bowls (or depending how many colours you'd like to use).
Add blue colouring and stir until combined. Place in the fridge.
Place the gingerbread dough between 2 sheets of baking paper.

Use a rolling pin, roll out the dough until 4mm thick.
Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut out the shape.
Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to cool.
Place the icing into a piping bag and get ready for some fun!

Turn the gingerbread man up-side-down.
Pipe white icing over the biscuit to decorate as shown.
Dot the blue icing to indicate the eyes.
Add red smarties on the nose to finish it off.

There you have it - Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer gingerbread biscuit.

These are a lot of fun to make and they will definitely bring smiles to all when you finished.

Most importantly, they are totally endearing to give away as Kris Kringle presents!
