Ingredients
  • 350g plain flour
  • 1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 level tsp ground ginger
  • ½ level tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ level tsp mixed spice
  • 125g butter, chilled
  • 175g light soft brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 medium egg, lightly beaten
  • Asda White Piping Icing, to decorate
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Sift the first five ingredients into a bowl. Cut the butter into small cubes and rub it into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, golden syrup and egg to make a stiff dough.

  • Roll out on a floured surface to slightly thicker than a pound coin. Cut into gingerbread men and put on the trays.

  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, allow to cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Pipe on the white icing to make faces and bones.
