A delicious gingery cookie that bakes up crisp. Nice baked into lovely shapes and iced using royal icing. A real bonus is that these tasty little cookies are also gluten free!!!!!

Loved this recipe! Here's some helpful info if you're American though: 125g of butter is roughly 1/2C plus 1T. We also don't have golden syrup here so I used 1/4C of Molasses instead. After reading the comments, I added more spice too: 1/4t each of allspice and ground cloves. Baked at 350 for 9 minutes. Perfection!
