Gingerbread Biscuits

A lovely simple gingerbread recipe

Ingredients (Makes about 20)
350g plan flour
1-2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
110g suitable margarine
175g soft light brown sugar
1 egg
4 tbsp golden syrup

1) Put the flour, ginger and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and rub in the margarine.
2) Add sugar and stir in the syrup and egg to make a firm dough.
3) Roll out to 1/2cm thick and cut out required shapes.
4) Bake at 190 degrees on greased baking trays (make sure they're well spaced out as they will expand!) for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
5) Once cooked leave for a couple of minutes before placing in a wire rack to cool.
6) Once cooled, decorate with icing as required.
