A while ago, I had the thought of using
our wooden letterpress blocks to
stamp letters into cookies.
I tried it. It wasn’t a failure.
But it wasn’t a great success either.
Then my husband tracked me down
some letterpress cookie cutters instead.
With Blook Club 3 on Sunday,
I thought it was the perfect excuse
to try them out…
So I made up a lump of gingerbread dough
based on an adaptation of this recipe …
(Lump being the technical term of course!)
140g unsalted butter
100g dark muscovado sugar
6 soup-spoons of golden syrup
350g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon powdered ginger
Heated up the sugar, butter and syrup
then mixed in the rest until there was
a lump of gingerbread ready to go!
I did consider icing the letters
but thought that might
look like they’d been iced on…
which would defeat the point!
What will you be baking this Xmas?
I’ll definitely be making more of these
and some of Danae’s amazing brownies
that she brought to Blook Club too.
