Party Treats - Gingerbread Man Biscuits

2 oz/ 50 g butter
2 oz/ 50 g sugar
1.5 tbsp golden syrup
6 oz/ 175 g self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 rounded tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp milk

Melt the butter, syrup and sugar in a pan, stirring occasionally  Once everything has melted, remove from heat

Sift the flour, soda and ginger into a large bowl.  Stir in the melted butter syrup and sugar until you have a fairly stiff dough.  If it becomes too dry and crumbly, add a little milk, a drop at a time, until you get a dough that can be rolled without breaking.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and roll to about 1/4" thick.

Cut out biscuits using a cookie cutter, either round or as gingerbread men shaped. Keep rolling out the dough to make as many biscuits as you can. 

Using a palette knife, lift them and place them on a lightly greased baking tray.

Bake in the oven at 190C for about 8 - 10 minutes, until golden brown.

Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking tray and turn out onto a wire rack.

Decorate and eat.
