Whether it be a wedding favour, a tasty treat for your hens day or bridal shower, or something sweet to serve at the engagement party, everyone day is brightened with a little glitter. Or you could just make them for the one you love.

Here is my recipe for gorgeous glitter gingerbread biccies – the perfect homemade sparkly treat.

  • 75g brown sugar
  • 94g golden syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 280g plain flour
  • 3/4 tbsp ginger
  • 3/4 tsp mixed spice
  • 3/4 tsp bi-carb soda 
  • Rolled fondant icing
  • Edible glitter and sprinkles
  1. Cream butter and sugar.
  2. Add the golden syrup and egg.
  3. Mix until well combined.
  4. Sift in the dry ingredients and mix gently until combined.
  5. Turn out onto a floured board and knead very gently until smooth.
  6. Rest the dough in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  7. After resting, roll out the dough and cut into shapes.
  8. Place on a baking tray that has been lined with greaseproof paper.
  9. Rest for a further 20 minutes and then bake at 180 degrees for 10 minutes. 
  10. Cool for three minutes on the tray then allow to cool on a wire rack.
