  • 175 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 5 tbsps Golden Syrup

  1. Preheat your oven to 190C/180C Fan and line 3-4 Baking trays with Parchment paper (or do it in two batches if you only have two trays!)

  2. Add the flour, Bicarbonate of Soda, and Ginger to a large bowl and add the Cold, Cubed Butter to the bowl – 

  3. Rub together with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs! (Or mix the four ingredients in a food processor till its breadcrumbs!)

  4. Mix the sugar into the mix and combine, and then add the Golden Syrup and Egg - beat with a spatula/your hands until it is a smooth dough.

  5. Knead the biscuit dough, and then Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface.

  6. Roll it out to 1/2cm thickness and cut out your desired shapes! I did Gingerbread men, snowmen, and Christmas trees!
