Gingerbread cookies

Yields20 ServingsPrep Time20 minsCook Time11 minsTotal Time31 mins

 120 g unsalted butter, softened
 1.50 tbsp black treacle
 170 g soft light brown sugar
 0.50 tsp fine sea salt
 1 medium egg
 200 g plain flour
 0.25 tsp bicarbonate of soda
 0.25 tsp ground cloves
 1.50 tsp ground ginger
 0.50 tsp ground cinnamon
 60 g golden caster sugar

Beat together the butter, treacle, brown sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the egg, then beat through all of the remaining dry ingredients apart from the caster sugar.


Chill the mixture in the fridge for 1 hr.


Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 4. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment. Roll the mixture into 20 even-sized balls (weighing for accuracy, if you like).


Tip the caster sugar onto a small plate, then add each ball and roll around to coat. Space each ball out on the baking sheets.


Bake for 9-10 mins until golden brown. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
