    Gingerbread Biscuits


    • 350g plain flour
    • 2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
    • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 100g butter
    • 175g dark soft brown sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 4 tablespoons golden syrup



    1. Mix the flour and spices together
    2. Rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs
    3. Add the sugar
    4. In a separate bowl, mix together the egg and golden syrup, then add to the dry ingredients.
    5. Mix together until it forms a soft dough. Tip out onto a clean work surface and knead for a minute or two until the dough is smooth.
    6. Pre-heat the oven to 180C
    7. Roll out the dough to the thickness of a pound coin and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. If you want to hang them on the tree remember to punch out a hole at the top, a straw is really good for this.
    8. Lay the biscuits onto a greased baking tray or baking parchment and bake for 10 – 15 minutes until golden brown.
    9. Leave to cool before decorating with icing and sprinkles. Thread with ribbon and hang them on your tree.
