Notes for the cook

I like my biscuits very gingery, but feel free to use less! (Or even a different spice – like cinnamon!)

These biscuits will last for about a week in an airtight container.

It’s best to decorate with sweets, chocolate, or royal icing.

  • 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!)
  • Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and ginger to a large bowl and add the cold, cubed butter to the bowl
  • Rub together with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs! (Or mix the four ingredients in a food processor till its breadcrumbs!)
  • 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.
  • Knead the biscuit dough, and then roll the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface.
  • Roll it out to 1/2cm thickness and cut out your desired shapes! You can do gingerbread men, snowmen, Christmas trees!
  • Place them on the lined baking trays and bake in the oven for 10-11 minutes, cool on a wire rack fully, and then decorate how you please!
