Your gingerbread cutter can make these REINDEER biscuits!


Sometimes here at Healthy Mummy HQ, we think we kind of know a fair bit when it comes to Christmas baking. Mince pies – tick. Fruit cake – tick. Trifle – tick.

And then along comes a revelation like this that just blows everything we thought we knew out of the water.

Did you know that you can use your gingerbread people biscuit cutters to make ADORABLE reindeer biscuits?

That’s right! Check out our recipe below for a fantastic sugar-free gingerbread dough that can be used for gingerbread people, reindeers, stars, or whatever festive cutter you happen to have on hand!

Instructions

Biscuits

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, almond meal, baking powder and the spices.

  2. In a second bowl, combine the butter cubes (or oil), honey, dates, vanilla and egg. Using a hand blender, blend these wet ingredients until well combined. Alternatively, use a food processor or blender.

  3. Add the butter mixture to the flour mixture and mix well to combine.

  4. Turn the dough out onto a clean surface and roll out to around 3mm thick.

  5. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place dough onto tray.

  6. Cover with another piece of baking paper and place in the fridge to firm up.

  7. Just before removing from the fridge, pre-heat the oven to 150C.

  8. After an hour, remove from the fridge and use your gingerbread cutter to cut the dough into shape. Re-roll leftover dough and keep cutting biscuits from it to use it all up.

  9. Return to the lined baking tray and place into the oven.

  10. Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking regularly.

  11. When starting to turn golden brown, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Reindeer decoration:

  1. Melt the white chocolate with 10 dark choc chips in the microwave or on a double boiler to make the light brown.

  2. Pipe onto cookie to create the shape of the reindeer’s head. Stick the goji berries on for the nose before the chocolate has set.

  3. Melt the remaining dark chocolate and carefully pipe out the reindeer’s antlers, inner ears, eyes and mouth.
