Gingerbread Stars

Hi Guys
I made some Gingerbread for the first time ever this week....conclusion....this wont be the last time I bake them.. Seriously even Hanzel & Gretal would happily gorge themselves on these babies........yes I judge my baking success by whether fictional fairytale characters would happily eat them.....doesn't everyone??

I used the BBC Food gingerbread recipe.
I am sure everyone and their mother has made  gingerbread before but this new novice loved everything involved in the process. From the delicious intoxicating scents that wafts  all over the house when they start baking to the lovely lingering cinnamon smell that clings to the biscuits tin afterwards. Mostly importantly the delicious taste. These were soft and chewy in the middle and crisper towards the edges, the only way  any biscuit should be, full of that yummy Gingery Cinnamon  flavour. YUM!

Note:Mine took 11 minutes in the oven don't move them from the baking tray as soon as you take them out as they are delicate let them rest so the softer middle becomes stable. They will firm up after they have sat a while so best to get them out earlier otherwise you will get really hard bics.

I'm entering these lovley things in to lots of challenges as they are yummy and festive which goes with the themes for this month.
