Steps

1

For apple sauce

Combine all ingredients and cook the apples for around 60 minutes. Check after 30-40 minutes and add a spoonful of water if necessary.
Leave to cool.

2

For gingerbread men

Preheat the Panasonic combi-oven to 160°C with the fan. See manual for info. Line a baking tray with parchment.


3

Pour the sugar, apple sauce, oil, molasses, syrup and milk into a tall, narrow container. Blend with an electric whisk until well-mixed.


4

Sieve the flour and combine with the rest of the dry ingredients in the bread machine (I used the gluten-free programme) or in a food processor. Pour in the liquid mixture and blend to a moist, crumbly dough.

5

Shape into a ball and leave it to rest in the fridge if hot. If it is just warm it can be rolled out at once.

6

Roll the dough out, not too thinly (about 4mm), between two sheets of baking parchment, and cut out the biscuits with your chosen cutter. Bring the remainder together again and repeat until all the dough is used up.

7

Bake in the fan oven at 160°C for 8 minutes. Leave to cool completely before decorating.

8

To make the biscuit icing

In bowl combine the homemade icing sugar (just blend sugar with a powerful blender) with a few drops of lemon juice, water or plant milk to a very thick creamy consistency. Mix and transfer to a piping bag. Decorate as you like.

Enjoy
