Christmas Goodies Part 2

These are some choc ginger cookies I made for Madelines classroom's shared lunch. I was also just experimenting with some different decorations!

Pretty stars:

Little bite sized circles dipped in chocolate:

And some candy cane shapes, dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes (the fruit flavoured ones):

Anyway here's the recipe:

Choc Ginger Cookies
125g butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon fresh ginger (or you can use powder, or glace ginger finely chopped)
1 1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup cocoa

Cream butter and sugar, and add egg. Add ginger. Sift dry ingredients together and add in 2 batches to the creamed mixture. Roll dough out to 5mm thickness and stamp with your choice of cookie cutter.
Small cookies take about 10mins, large cookies give a couple minutes more. Bake in 180 deg Celsius oven.

These are seriously so yummy its hard to stop munching!
