Ingredients
  • 125g butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 25g golden syrup
  • 325g plain flour
  • 1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 level tsp ground ginger
  • ½ level tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten
  • Asda White Piping Icing
  • Asda Posh Pearls
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Put the butter, caster sugar and syrup in a pan and stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted (don't allow the mixture to boil). Remove from the heat.

  • Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and cinnamon into a mixing bowl. Add the butter mixture and eggs, then mix to make a stiff dough. Wrap in cling film and chill for 20 minutes.

  • Roll out on a floured surface to 4mm thick. Cut out tree shapes and rectangles (for the bases). Place on the trays and bake for 10 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and leave for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  • Decorate with white piping icing and posh pearls. If you want your trees to stand, position them upright on the rectangles and secure with piping icing.
