  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 300g plain flour
  • 100g maple sugar

FOR THE ICING

  • 200g maple sugar
  • 3 tbsp orange juice

Method

TO MAKE THE GINGERBREAD BISCUITS

  1. Preheat the oven at 180°C. Melt the butter, sugar and maple syrup in a pan.
  2. Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ground ginger and cinnamon in a separate bowl.
  3. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the melted butter and sugar mixture.
  4. Use your hands to make a dough.
  5. Roll out your dough between two sheets of baking paper, to the thickness of a £1 coin.
  6. Cut out your biscuit shapes and bake for 10-12 mins.

TO MAKE THE ICING

  1. Mix the sugar with the cinnamon and add the orange juice. You may find you need a little more liquid, in which case add a few drops of orange juice at a time.
  2. Pipe your biscuits when they’re cold and store in an airtight container.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
