4. Carefully transfer the dough onto your bench, you will need to use a spatula to scrape the mixture out of the Thermomix bowl - this is completely normal. Use your hands to shape into a ball before popping into the fridge to chill.

5. Roll out the dough and use your favourite biscuit cutter before placing onto baking trays.

Tips for Making Gingerbread in a Thermomix:

  1. If you use a traditional gingerbread cutter this recipe will make around 20 gingerbread biscuits.
  2. If you use a different shaped biscuit cutter the cooking time will vary.
  3. Your mixture will be very soft when removing from the Thermomix bowl, this is why it is important to chill the dough before rolling out and cutting.
  4. I find it easiest to roll the dough out on a Thermomat and place a piece of baking paper between the dough and my rolling pin to help keep the surface of the dough smooth.
  5. These biscuits are best stored in an airtight container and enjoyed within one week.
  6. You can freeze both the cooked biscuits and the dough for up to two months.

    If the recipe is a bit crumbly what do I do to make it more moist ready for rolling

    Hi I'm abit of a newbie. Are steps 1-4 using the standard blade? Step 5 days knead for 2 mins - how do I do this? Many thanks.

    Reply

    • Lauren says

      Hi Karen, Yes it's all using the standard blade and to you just need to select the 'kneading' function.

      Hope that helps 🙂

    It is in the fridge at the moment and I just realised I've forgotten the BiCarb.

  9. Kate Lang says

    Can I leave dough to rest overnight or only the 30 min?

    Reply

    • Lauren says

      You can leave it overnight, you will just need to let it warm up a little when you take it out so that you can roll it.

  10. Joanne says

    Can you please tell me if this recipe is suitable for building a house, is there enough dough and is it strong enough?

    Reply

    • Lauren says

      Hi Joanne, If you are wanting to build a house I think you would need a double mixture, it makes around 16 regular gingerbread men. I haven't used it to build a house, I guess if you cooked it a little longer it would be ok.

      Hi Joanne, did you try this recipe as a house?

    So awesome! I've been looking everywhere for a recipie, but they ALL require mollasses, or butter scotch mix (that I don't have) This recipie is GREAT!!

      Woo hoo! We're thrilled to hear that!

    Hi , my last gingerbread attempt was a complete fail so I would love to try this . Is the oven temp fan forced or non fan forced please ? Thanks 🙂

    Reply

    • Lauren says

      Hi Jen,
      I hope it works out for you - the oven temps are for fan forced (which is what I use) however I'd suggest checking how your Gingerbread is going after 10 minutes as the times can vary depending on the size of the cutter/thickness of your gingerbread.

        This is going to sound silly but could I use fresh ginger if I don't have the powdered kind?

      • Lauren says

        Not silly at all! Hmm, I probably wouldn't as you might be left with little pieces of ginger in it.

  14. Holly says

    Just made these and they are a winner! Not too sweet, just the perfect amount of spice... Our home smells like Christmas! Thanks for a fabulous recipe.
