if it's just the shape of the men that you're after, consider making them with sortbread mix...much yummier IMO and more LOs prefer them

I have a great recipe if you want it

oh, the easiest random biscuits for cutting out are:
1oz sugar
2oz butter
3oz flour
cream butter & sugar, stir in flour, knead, roll out, cut out, 10min gas 4.

you can ice them afterwards or add ginger, raisins, orange zest, choc chips etc to the mix to tart them up
