Gingerbread is a classic biscuit, and is one of the easiest recipes to veganise to make people, a house or simple cookies. I decided to add molasses for a little extra depth, but if you'd prefer not to use simply replace with extra golden syrup. The royal icing is super easy to make, so you'll be whipping up a whole family of gingerbread people in no time!
This recipe makes approximately 50 gingerbread people, depending on the size of your cookie cutters. If you'd prefer to make a smaller batch, simply halve the recipe. When I bake cookies I tend to bake a large batch and freeze them!
You can make these extra festive by baking each gingerbread person with its arms holding a nut. Once baked, remove the nut and replace with a candy cane.
