Every Christmas I design a new pattern and make a gingerbread house. The kids love to help decorate. This recipe is enough to make one gingerbread house.
Watch our How to make gingerbread men video to see how to make perfect gingerbread biscuits every time!

I don't know what I did wrong but the dough did not bind together and I was left with a crumbly mess.... Eventually I added a sprinkle of water, sadly the dough still didn't work out and the segments of house crumbled in the oven...the only redeeming feature was the flavour... nice - 22 Dec 2010
Thanks for this great recipe This is the first time I've made a gingerbread. My friend makes them with the precision of an archetiect but mine was rustic and wonky!.. The important stuff, it was ready in about 24 hours. I altered the recipe slightly, I used 300 black treacle and 50 golden syrup and next time will do half and half. I also added around 100g of extra flour. The person above has said this did not come together, I had the opposite experience making me think that it must be the type of raw ingredients (butter or marg etc) will alter the consistency and you have to adapt it a little. I added the extra flour and it was perfect and SO yummy (raw!). I rolled as suggested but next time I'd roll thinner, a matter of taste I think. I've added some pics - 30 Nov 2013
