As soon as I received my copy of Cordially Invited, I was desperate to make all of the recipes! However, I decided that the first one I’d try would be Zoe’s gingerbread recipe. I’ve never tried making gingerbread with treacle before, but now it’s definitely my preferred method.
Usually any biscuits I make turn out dry and very crunchy but this gingerbread was perfect. My uni friends gave them their seal of approval, so they must be good! I will apologise in advance for the icing, though – I’m still a newbie when it comes to icing and decorating, so it really isn’t my strong point. I tried to pick out the prettiest ones for pictures, but I didn’t have a lot to choose from.
