Does anyone have an easy and tasty one?



I used this one. It says quite soft and everyone loved it!

Thanks, I like the look of that one. I have some new cookie cutters that I'm keen to try out!

I developed this Gingerbread recipe. It has no refined sugar but is still sweet and tasty. I added some dried pear which gives it a nice chewy texture and fruity flavour too. It was a hit with my little one and hubby.

Mmm, I made the BBC Food ones, wannabe. They look and taste lovely.

drladybird, I'd like to make a healthier version for DS, but I'm not sure that I like the taste of molasses. I love the idea of adding dried pear - I love dried apple, so I'll try that I think, apple and ginger sounds lovely.

Molasses is just black treacle. They sell it beside the golden syrup smile

Glad you liked them!

Apple and ginger does sound nice. Let us know how you get on.
You can also get blackstrap molasses from health food shops- it is great because it contains lots of goodstuff (iron and other vitamins) as well as being sweet.
