Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Cream butter and agave nectar slowly in a mixer. Add spices.

In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. 

Add dry ingredients into the mixer, or beat in with a hand mixer. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well and add more flour if the batter is too oily.

Place dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to firm up the dough.

You can shape the cookies in various ways. Try rolling out and cutting into gingerbread people shapes, or if you are working with small children, have them roll out heads and bodies and feet and make their own gingerbread people.

Bake the little people for 20 - 25 minutes, or until a little brown on edges.
