View Full Version : Gingerbread men

13-Dec-07, 15:01
350g plain flour
Up to 1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
100g butter or margarine
175g soft light brown sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons golden syrup
Makes about 20 biscuits.

Put the flour, ginger and soda into a bowl and rub in the butter.
Add sugar and stir in the syrup and egg to make a firm dough.
Roll out to about 5mm thick and cut out your gingerbread men. If you don't have a gingerbread man cutter then use whatever you have - stars and hearts are just as tasty.
Bake in a 190 degree c oven for 10 to 15 mins until golden brown.
Once cooled, decorate with icing.
