How it's done

Gingerbread biscuits

Place the butter, sugar, egg and salt in a bowl, mix using the whisk on a hand mixer until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. Mix the flour, gingerbread spice, baking powder and lemon zest, stir into the mixture, cover and chill for approx. 30 mins. Roll out the dough in batches between two sheets of baking paper to approx. 2 mm thick, cut out shapes.
