I’m sure that I’m not the only one who has spots those cute creations on Pinterest and vows to make them but either never does or it turns out nothing like the picture – however this is not the case with these Christmas Reindeer Biscuits!
I’ve been meaning to make these Reindeer Biscuits for years, but I always put them into the too hard basket – and after making these I have no idea why!
These Gingerbread Reindeers are SO easy to make. They have just the right amount of ginger so that they are not too overpowering and as well as tasting great, decorating them with the kids is loads of fun!
I picked up a chocolate and white chocolate writing icing pen from our local supermarket to add the details to our Reindeers, I find it soooo much easier to use these to decorate vs a piping bag. Then all you need is some red smarties and you are ready to decorate!
These Christmas Reindeer Biscuits are perfect to take along when you are asked to bring a plate and they would also make a great gift for teachers, family and friends.
Christmas Reindeers Thermomix Instructions
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line two baking trays with paper.
- Place the golden syrup, sugar, butter and spices into your Thermomix bowl and cook for 5 minutes at 50 degrees on speed 2.
- Add the egg and mix for 3 seconds on speed 3.
- Add the flour and bicarbonate of soda and mix for 10 seconds on speed 5 or until combined.
- Knead for 2 minutes before turning the dough out onto your Thermomat and lightly knead to form a ball.
- Flatten the dough into a disc, cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Remove dough from the fridge and roll each portion between two sheets of baking paper until approximately 5mm thick. Use cutters of your choice to cut out shapes and place on baking trays. Bake for approximately 9 – 11 minutes – please note baking times will vary depending on the size of the cutter used.
- Allow the gingerbread to completely cool before turning upside down and decorating as pictured with a chocolate and white chocolate icing pen. Place a little icing in the centre of your reindeers ‘face’ to help secure it’s nose. Repeat until you have decorated all of your reindeers.
