I dislike making cut cookies because of the amount of work involved. Making the batter, rolling, transferring the cookies, waiting for it to bake, making up the icing to go onto it, getting it just the right consistency, piping it on... so much work!
However, managed to do all of that in 45 minutes!!
Here are my gingerbread men. Quite proud of them.
2 tsbp golden syrup
160g self raising flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1. Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup together. Add flour and ground ginger and mix until it forms a dough.
2. Cut cookies out and bake in a 180 Celcius oven until slightly brown around the edges.
