2tablespoonHoney or sweetener of choice1 tablespoon Truvia
7tablespoon/ 100g Butterroom temperature
1Orange zest and juice
1teaspoon/ 5g Ginger from fresh rootground
1cup/ 100g Flour for dustingany
Preheat oven onto 350°F / 180°C.
Prepare trays with parchment paper.
Grind ginger and orange peel for its zest. At the orange we'll only need the orange colored part not the white.
Squeeze the orange, we'll use the juice of it.
Put all ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl except the flour for dusting.
Work it together by hand until getting an even dough. Don't afraid to put a bit more flour into it if it seems too sticky. Much depends on the consistency of the butter. If the butter is soft we need more flour to be able to work with the dough.
Take dough out of the bowl onto a lightly floured surface.
Roll it flat. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down.
Cut out the shapes with cookie cutters.
Place them on the tray. Use a knife or a spatula to transport the shapes on the tray so they keep their shape.
Put Gingerbread man into the preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Don't leave it too long in the oven and be alert as it can burn from one minute to another.
Take them out and let them cool down.
Decorate according to taste.
