Ingredients

  • 350g plain flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp mixed spice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 175g butter
  • 150g light brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
 
Decoration
  • M&Ms
  • Writing Icing Pens
  • Glace cherries
  • Curly Wurly chocolate bars

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven.
  2. Measure the flour, spices, salt, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a bowl. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix together. Lightly knead together to make a dough. Form into 10 balls of dough.  Pinch one end of the ball to form a point, and then flatten out with your hand.  Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until lightly golden but still slightly soft.
  3. Make 2 holes for the ears using a small skewer and leave to cool for a few minutes.  Decorate with lengths of Curly Wurly for the ears, glace cherries for the nose and M&Ms for the eyes.
