Humidity-Proof Gingerbread Cactus Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • For assembly:
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Chocolate rocks
  • Cactus cookies

Steps

  1. In a large pot, combine brown sugar, corn syrup and butter. Stir over medium heat until butter is melted, then remove from heat.
  2. Stir in flour and spices. Mixture will be stiff so use hands to mix well.
  3. Place dough in a bowl and cover tightly. Let cool for 20 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Wrap an oven-safe bowl with foil, then spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Once dough is cool, roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness and then drape over the prepared bowl. Trim off the excess dough, then bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  7. If the dough spreads, trim off the excess around the bowl immediately after removing from the oven. Let the bowl cool.
  8. Fill with graham cracker crumbs, top with chocolate rocks, and insert cactus cookies!
  9. This dough bakes hard and tough to be structurally sound. If you want a tasty gingerbread to take a bite of, see recipe below!
