St. Patrick’s Day Gingerbread Shamrocks
Super simple gingerbread shamrocks to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
Heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.
Melt the wet (meltable) ingredients in a pan: margarine, sugar and golden syrup.
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger.
Add the wet mixture to the dry, then mix and combine into a lovely warm ball of dough. If the mixture is too wet, and not a dough that you can form into a ball, add more flour.
Roll out the dough (about ½ cm thick or a bit less) using a rolling pin, and cut into shapes with a shamrock cookie cutter.
Line some oven trays with baking paper.
Place the gingerbread shamrocks on the trays and bake for 6-15 minutes. (Time varies according to the oven so check how they’re doing after 5 minutes or so. They may look soft but will harden a bit once they cool.)
Decorate with green icing, or enjoy as they are.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
