Gingerbread smile I am making some today with the kids.
225g SR Flour
100g brown sugar
75g butter/marg
1 tsp ginger
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 egg

Mix flour, sugar & ginger together, then add butter. work with fingers into breadcrumbs. Beat the egg & add golden syrup, then add to mix. Mix together with a spoon, then knead into dough. (I put dough in fridge for about 30 mins, makes it easier to roll out)
Roll out.. cut into shapes then cook at 170 degrees for about 15 mins.

When the butter is melted pour the bicar/water inin and stir together. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix well to make a dough. Roll into wallnut sized balls and place on a baking sheet.
