It's a Tesco Gingerbread Dough Recipe thing ...

Another great Christmas recipe from Tesco .


  • 845g (28oz) plain flour
  • 4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 340g unsalted butter, softened
  • 300g (10oz) granulated sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 250g (8oz) black treacle


  1. 1 - Sift the flourginger, and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. 2 - In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy.
  3. 3 - Add the eggs, one at time, beating well after each addition. Pour in the treacle and continue beating until combined and smooth.
  4. 4 - Gradually fold in the flour mixture to form a dough (don’t worry if it’s a little sticky to start with). Once the dough starts to come together, knead with your hands for 1-2 mins, until smooth and combined, ensuring there is no flour left in the bowl.
  5. 5 - Divide your dough into 5 or 6 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into squares about 1in (2.5cm) thick – this will make it easier to work with. Wrap the squares securely in clingfilm and chill for at least 2 hrs, or overnight.
  6. 6 - The dough can now be used to make individual biscuits, houses or any other design. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180˚C, fan 160˚C. Roll out each piece between two pieces of nonstick baking paper to the thickness of a £1 coin. Stamp or cut out your shapes and transfer to a lined baking tray. Cooking times will vary depending on the size of each shape, from 3-4 mins for small biscuits to 12-14 mins for large structural pieces. The biscuits are ready when golden brown and firm to touch. Leave to cool completely before adding any icing or decoration.

A big thank you to Tesco for this yummy festive recipe.

Tis the season ...
