Morning tea

Today was Australia's Biggest Morning Tea a Cancer Council fundraising event. Chloe and I went to a morning tea at a good friends house and had a lovely time, eating, drinking and playing. In this spirit I thought I'd put up a recipe. Chloe and I have been going through a bit of a gingerbread man phase. The recipe is from a cookbook I had as a child hence the great aprons and wallpaper.

Gingerbread Men
100g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
25g brown sugar
50g butter
75g golden syrup
1 tsp ground ginger
More flour for rolling
Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees C.
Cream butter and sugar. Mix in the golden syrup and ginger followed by the flour and bicarb.
Roll out on a board to about 4mm thick using lots of flour or it will stick.
Cut lots of cute men and women and babies and decorate - we use little m&M type chocolates.
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.
Put the kettle on and make a cup of tea. Sit down and enjoy.

In our lounge room (1980's)we had red thick carpet and wallpaper that was white with black feathery lines running down it! How shocking!
Glad your morning tea was more tasteful!
