How to Make GINGER SHORTBREAD

Step-by-Step

  2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/2 inch thick. Place in a greased and lined 8-inch pan.
  3. Bake on the lower shelf of a preheated 300-degree oven for about one hour or until pale golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. FOR THE ICING: Blend all the ingredients together in a sauce pan until melted and smooth.
  5. Pour over the warm shortbread and leave it to set. When completely cooled, cut into slices and enjoy with a nice cuppa tea.
