The festive season is upon us and what better way to celebrate moments that matter and cherish special memories in the kitchen with your cheerful little helpers, is by turning on the Christmas tunes and grabbing your apron to bake delicious gingerbread cookies. Something Amanda @thecordonykitchen cherishes the most.

So, with the help of our friend Amanda Cordony, @thecordonykitchen we have the perfect family friendly recipe the kids will love, inspired by our delicious Gingerbread Cookies fragrance.


Makes: 30 mini Gingerbread Men Cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes + 30 minutes refrigeration
Cook time: 10 minutes + resting time


1 cup pitted dates
100g salted butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon cardamom powder
1 teaspoon bi carb soda
1 1/2 cups plain flour
Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter

Step 1: Boil a pot of water and then add the pitted dates to soak for 5 minutes. Drain and discard the water from the pitted dates and place dates into a food processor. Blend until smooth.

Step 2: Add butter, maple syrup, ginger powder, cardamom powder, and bi carb soda in with the dates and blend again until smooth. Scrape down with a spatula and blend again. The date mixture will be smooth and fluffy.

Step 3: Tip into a bowl and add the plain flour bit by bit, mixing in until all combined. Roll into a ball and wrap in glad wrap. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 4:
Preheat the oven to 180C. Cut the mixture in half and place each half in between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll flat so the gingerbread is 5mm thick. Using your Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter, cut gingerbread men shapes and take leftover gingerbread away from cut men. Repeat process.

Step 5: Slide the parchment paper onto a flat baking tray and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool before moving off the tray. Serve.

Step 6: Continue the ambience of sweet and spicy freshly baked Gingerbread Cookies in your home with your CIRCA Gingerbread Cookies Scented Soy Candle.

And there you have, a new Christmas tradition celebrating moments that matter with your special little helpers.
