DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne and salt into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the butter and sugar and rub until the butter is absorbed and the mixture has a sandy texture.
  • Mix in the syrup and enough of the beaten egg to make a fairly stiff, smooth dough.
  • Shape the dough into a ball and wrap in cling film.
  • Place the dough in the fridge to firm up for at least 45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a couple of non-stick baking sheets.
  • Roll out the dough to 3 mm thickness.
  • Cut the biscuits into your desired shapes and place on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown then set aside to cool on the baking sheets.
  • Decorate the biscuits with piped royal icing.
  • Store in an airtight container.
