Gingerbread Men (or Women or Children)

This is a traditional favourite. Great biscuits that appeal to all ages and that you can make in all kinds of shapes, not just members of the Gingerbread family. 

Makes: About twenty men from a standard cutter

Ingredients

- 350g / 12 oz of plain flour

- 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda

- 2 teaspoons of ground ginger

- 100g / 4 oz of margarine

- 175g / 6 oz of light muscovado sugar

- 4 tablespoons of golden syrup

- 1 egg – beaten

- Currants to decorate (if you want to)

Method

1)   Put the oven on to 190 degrees (gas mark 5)

2)   Lightly grease 3 baking trays or line them with sheets of silicone mat (no chance of sticking and easier to wash up!)

3)   Put the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into a bowl and rub in the margarine until it looks like a bowl of breadcrumbs

4)   Stir in the sugar then add the syrup and egg and mix to make a smooth dough. You will need to knead a bit by hand at the end

5)   Split the dough into two and roll out one half on a lightly floured work surface to about 5mm / ¼ inch thick (the flour should stop the dough sticking to your worktops)

6)   Cut out your shapes with the cutter and lay onto the prepared baking trays. Here you can use your currants for eyes and buttons if you like

7)   Repeat with the remaining dough*

8)   Bake your gingerbread men (or whatever shape you have gone for) for about 10-12 minutes until they are a bit darker and then lift onto a wire rack to cool completely 

*Tip: Making the most of your dough…

Don’t forget the bits left after cutting your shapes can just be squashed back together and rolled out again to get the most from your dough
