Baking with Bigjigs: Ginger biscuits

Bigjigs baking sets

We love to bake, and as this weekend was a bit damp, we decided to make the most of our new Bigjigs baking sets and make some family favourite ginger biscuits.

Ginger biscuits
Gingerbread biscuits, perfect for all the family.

  6. 175 soft light brown sugar
  1. Put the flour and ginger into a bowl and rub in the butter
  2. Add the sugar, syrup and egg and stir to make a dough
  3. Roll out on a floured surface, then cut into desired shapes using pastry cutters
  4. Place on a lined baking tray and bake at 190 degrees fof 10-15 minutes

This is such a simple recipe, and uses very basic store cupboard ingredients. The children loved using their own baking sets – the pastry cutters and rolling pins are the perfect size for little hands, and much easier to manage than full sized versions. The little whisk came in very handy for beating the egg, and the wooden chopping board is perfect for the cutting stage. We didn’t use the cake tray this time, or the cake cases, but they would be ideal for making cupcakes – the tray itself is very good quality! It would be lovely to see a small baking tray included for biscuit bakes too.

Gemma and Jacob have really enjoyed using the Bigjigs baking sets, they felt like ‘proper chefs’ with their own trays, cutters and oven gloves. As well as being great sets for real baking, they would also be perfect to use with playdough, or even salt dough as demonstrated by the lovely Joshua from The Olivers Madhouse.
