Great for #Halloween (31st October) or #DayOfTheDead (November 2nd) festivities this dairy-free gingerbread biscuit recipe is a keeper. For soft gingerbreads cook till just lightly browned, for crunchy gingerbreads keep baking until a dark 'n golden deep caramel colour. Perfect with a dusting of icing sugar OR for those who love to decorate with coloured icing and edible inks - the results can be stunning.
