Gingerbread men Recipe

We have been busy baking again...........try this recipe for gingerbread men!!!
You will need:

A person shaped cutter
125g butter

125g light muscovado sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup
300g plain flour
1tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp mixed spice

Currants to decorate1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200c. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a small pan. Stir in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices until the mixture forms a thick, soft dough. Gather into a ball and wrap in cling film. Store in the fridge for 30 mins until firm.

2. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface and cut out the gingerbread men using the shaped cutter. Use the currants to create eyes and buttons! Place on oiled baking trays and bake for 10-15 mins and firm to the touch.
