Gingerbread Button Biscuits
Cute as a button (excuse the pun), these gingerbread button biscuits inspired by icon Donna Hay, are the perfect Christmas treat.
This recipe takes me back to when I was 11 years old and wanted a Donna Hay cookbook for Christmas. It was the first cookbook I ever owned, and have admired her ever since. This is an ode to her original gingerbread recipe, adapted by using browned butter.
The only things you’ll need are 9 simple ingredients and some Christmas cheer.
Whether you are looking to serve a tasty treat or add a cute table decoration, these gingerbread button biscuits are the perfect combination of both. Have some fun in the kitchen with your family and get creative making these festive cookies. And if you’re feeling adventurous, mix it up and try different cookie shapes, like a Christmas tree!
You can also freeze any leftover dough for up to 2 months for your next special occasion! Or try one of our other baked goods recipes here.
