Ginger Biscuits

Hey readers,
This week my son asked me to make ginger biscuits and I said yes.
The weather was pants therefore it is a perfect wet afternoon activity to keep your little darlings entertained.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
  • 4 tsp ginger, ground 
  • 350g plain flour 
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup 
  • 100g butter 
  • Light brown sugar

How to make the biscuits
  1. Preheat oven 190’C/Gas mark 5
  2. Put the flour, ginger and soda into a bowl and rub in the butter.
  3. Add sugar and stir in the syrup and egg to make a firm dough.
  4. Roll out to about 5mm thick and cut out your gingerbread men.
  5. If you don’t have a gingerbread man cutter then use whatever you have – stars and hearts are just as tasty.
  6. Put a sheet of baking paper on a tray and evenly space out the biscuits, bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown
  7. Leave to firm up for a couple of minutes before placing on a wire rack to cook.
  8. Once cooled, decorate with icingMakes approximately 20 biscuits.
