Favorites For A Christmas Dinner Table

Holiday seasons are the best times to get your baking mode on. You get tons of people to feed so you never end of up overcooking and then you also get the surplus of exotic and unusual ingredients to try out some amazing recipes. So when it comes to kid’s desserts, you also have the chance to put some extra effort to making it amazing as well. So here are some recipes that you can enlist your kid’s help with, to make and bake to life.

If the traditional gingerbread house and the gingerbread man are worn out by being used every Christmas, then add a little zing by making it into an ice cream sandwich. Sometimes you will have the chance to try it in an international podium (they tend to serve this at any rooftop restaurant Bangkok). You will need the following ingredients to make this recipe from scratch;

●    One third cup of brown sugar
●    Half a cup of golden syrup
●    One large egg
●    Three cups of plain flour
●    120g of melted butter
●    2 teaspoons of ground ginger
●    2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
●    2 teaspoons of bicarbonate soda

Firstly you will need to get the oven going at around 160 degrees of Celsius. Then get onto making the dough and other necessary items. So for the second step get the melted butter and the brown sugar and beat until you get light fluffy cones forming. Then mix the other dry ingredients in another bowl and slowly add them to the ongoing beater to get the dough forming.

Grab the mixed dough and put it onto a lightly floured surface and slowly work and knead this into a baking form (you will have to do it for at least half an hour constantly until it’s really soft). Then put it back in the bowl, wrap and put in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Try to watch some recipe tips used at an Italian restaurant for kneading the dough as they have the best techniques.

Take the dough out of the fridge and then roll it out into a thin flat disc (around one inch of thickness) and cut out the gingerbread shapes of your desire. Cut the same shape twice for the sandwich. Then bake these on a baking tray for around 10 minutes till they are lightly browned.

After cooling the cooking grab your favorite flavor of ice cream and lay it on thick on one cookie and then cover with another cookie. Use your decorating skills to use to decorate the top side of the cookie. Make sure to freeze the cookies till they are served.
