Winter spices


Hi all & Happy New Year!
It's been a while since I last posted but I guess that for everyone the Christmas/New Year season is a pretty busy one!
This post is a little overdue as Christmas was 2 weeks ago but I thought I would share with you my 2012 gingerbread recipe. 
This year I decided to try out Martha Stewart's recipe (click here to view). I absolutely loved it and the cookies turned out simply delicious; the only modification I made was to substitute the molasses with Lyle's Golden Syrup as I am not a fan of molasses. It might sound a little strange to add pepper into a cookie dough but trust me it blends in perfectly with the rest of the spices.

In my next post I will show you the different Christmas goodies I made with the dough;) 






...And here is a little preview of my next post... can you guess what I have been baking?! ;)
