Steps

1

Sift together into a bowl the flour, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon.

2

Add the butter and blend together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

3

Stir in the sugar.

4

Lightly beat the eggs and golden syrup together. Add to the mix and combine until it clumps together.

5

Tip the dough onto a work surface and knead until smooth. Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for 15 mins.

6

Preheat the oven on convection 180°C.

7

Line two baking trays with grease-proof paper.

8

Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough out to ¼” thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out your ginger bread shapes and place on the baking trays. Leave a gap between the cookies.

9

Bake for 12-15 mins or until lightly golden. Leave on the baking tray to cool for 10 mins before moving to a wire rack to finish cooling.

10

When completely cool, decorate with the writing icing.

Enjoy
