Steps

1

Add butter, golden syrup and light brown sugar to a mixing bowl. Then place in the microwave and cook on MEDIUM MICROWAVE for 1 min or until melted, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.

2

In another mixing bowl mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger. Make a well in the centre and pour in the melted butter mixture.

3

Stir together to form a dough (it might be easiest to use your hands).

4

Wrap in clingfilm and let chill for 30 minutes to firm up.

5

Lay the dough between two sheets of baking parchment and press dough lightly with a rolling pin giving a quarter turn than repeat.

6

Give it a final quarter turn, then start to roll backwards and forwards, giving regular quarter turns. Until dough is roughly thickness of a £1 coin.

7

Using a biscuit cutter cut out the shapes using the end of a pencil push a hole in the top of the biscuit ready for threading with ribbon.

8

Bake at 180°C for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly golden brown.

9

Decorate and thread the string or ribbon through when completely cooled down.

10

The biscuits won't be firm but will harden when left to cool outside the oven.

Enjoy
