    Recently found this very simple recipe. Found it makes a biscuit very similar to the supermarket kind (but a bit better!). Topped with royal icing, they're fab!

    Initially it looks too crumbly but once you've mixed all the ingredients with an electric whisk, proceed to knead and the warmth of your hands helps bring it all together into a dough. Cooking for a shorter time makes a soft gingerbread biscuit, you can experiment with your batches. They tend to taste better the day(s) after being baked though!

    That looks like a great recipe - and one that's easily adaptable to making different flavours.
  • I'm making gingerbread people for the first time tomorrow to test the recipe and it says I need ground cloves, I searched the cupboard and found I have whole cloves could I just crush them til they're ground would that be the same?
    Sorry for the daft question :)

    Crush them in a pestle and mortar or processor, they'll be fine!
