  1. Caitlyn Yee says:

    How long do you put the dough in the fridge before rolling it out?

  2. Tesia Meza says:

    Great recipe! I live in the States so I used Honey instead of Golden Syrup and it still turned out really well πŸ™‚

  3. Gabriela Revollo says:

    If I don’t like gingerbread, can I just skip the ginger? Or add cocoa powder instead?

  4. Hamza Ameer says:

    Pls can u make a video all about your tattoo 😘 I LOVE YOU

  5. Anushka Rodrigues says:

    What can I use instead of syrup? I don't get it where I live

  6. vera de slegte says:

    Is there an alternative for the golden syrup? As I live in the Netherlands and they don’t sell that here…

  7. vera de slegte says:

    Guys, there is a store in the Netherlands, dillie & kamille, and they sell mini gingerbread cutters πŸ™‚

  10. Yvonne Broeksma says:

  11. youarekidding says:

    Powdered… Egg white?

  12. Leilani Allen says:

    could you add some kind of extract to the royal icing? like vanilla, lemon, almond…ect. or will that ruin it?

  13. Wendy Wu says:

    This is the best gingerbread recipe ever. It tastes delicious. I've tried others that turned out rock hard. Cant wait for xmas now so can make them for friends and family

  14. Emily Pacheco says:

    Is the goden surup just pancake surup???….

  15. RazDazThem says:

    Ohhh so cute βœ¨πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈ and love πŸ’•

  16. Elaina Weeks says:

    This looks doable. Will have to try it.

  17. Annika Panikker says:

    I have two family members allergic to any sort of ginger. Could I just leave out the spices and add vanilla to make the cookie dough? Also if I use castor sugar would it alter the texture of the cookie?

  18. Josephine Adam says:

    Thank youuuuuu! I’ve been looking for mini gingerbread houses idea!!!

  19. rayrayssundays says:

    made these as gingerbread men and they were a hit. Flavour is more on the milder side so if you dont like a really strong ginger flavour this is you go to. Super simple to make.

  20. Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen says:

    These kids had a gingerbread house party and made a village.

  21. Payal Minocha says:

  30. Jpc 11 says:

    Thank you Jemma, Christmas is wonderful but you always lift my spirits.

  31. Audrey Kunes says:

    What is golden syrup?

  32. Jo-Anne Prentice says:

    I used this recipe to construct a gingerbread village. It’s perfect! It rolls out beautifully and the finished cookie is nice and strong for construction. The best part is the flavour of the cookie…DELICIOUS! Using golden syrup in place of molasses is a revelation. I also add a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  33. Finlee Shhh says:

    That first house seems to have foundation subsidence

  34. Fabiola Rodriguez says:

    Just made golden syrup for Thanksgiving and have a full jar left over. Ill be using the extra to make these.😁

  35. Parameswary Thangavelu says:

    I love your little houses. I did this one year and they were so cute. You do great work.😊

  46. Mia Schu says:

    You could make a little Christmas wreath on the door with icing and the mini holly decorations. I think that I'll have a go next Christmas and make different flavours, like lemon, for those who don't like ginger.
