Gingerbread Stars

As with some of my other recipes, you can swap out ingredients:

Coconut flour

Cane sugar

Honey or other sugar friendly syrup

I have a gingerbread star tree set of cutters.

The recipe for gingerbread comes from the BBC website


  • 225g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 heaped tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 100g golden syrup


  • Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5 and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  • Sieve the flour, salt, bicarb, ginger and cinnamon into a large bowl.
  • Heat the butter, sugar and syrup until dissolved.
  • Leave the sugar mixture to cool slightly, then mix into the dry ingredients to form a dough.
  • Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 mins.
  • On a surface lightly dusted with flour, roll out the dough to a ¼-inch thickness.
  • Stamp out the gingerbread shapes with a cutter, then re-roll any off-cuts and repeat.
  • Place your gingerbread shapes on the lined trays, allowing space for them to spread.
  • Bake for 10-15 mins, then remove from the oven and leave to cool.
  • Build your tree
