GINGERBREAD GIFT TAGS

Gingerbread Ingredients:

  • 3 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup of margarine

Royal Icing Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound of powdered sugar
  • 2 egg whites at room temperature
  • 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar

Directions:

  • Stir dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Combine corn syrup, brown sugar and margarine in a saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat until margarine is melted. Stir liquid into flour mixture. Mix well using hands to mix as dough becomes stiff. ┬áChill dough for half an hour.
  • Roll dough into 1/8 inch thickness onto parchment paper.
  • Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Use a straw to punch out a small hole at the top of each cookie.
  • Remove the scraps and re-roll into more dough to cut into shapes.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown at 350 degrees. Cool completely on a rack.
  • To make the royal icing, sift the sugar into a bowl. Place egg whites into the bowl of a mixer. Add sugar and cream of tartar to whites while mixing. When all sugar is incorporated, turn mixer on high and beat until thick and very white, about 5-7 minutes. Cover the icing with a damp cloth until you use it because it dries very quickly.
  • Pipe icing into a piping bag with a #1 round┬átip and ice the gift tags.
  • Once the icing has hardened, thread the gift tags with twine or ribbon and tie onto the top of your presents!
