Ingredients

  • 75g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 level tablespoons Golden Syrup
  • 1 level tablespoons Treacle
  • 95g Low Fat Spread
  • 235g Plain White Flour, (5 g for dusting)
  • 2 level tablespoons Ground Ginger
  • 1 level teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 30g Icing Sugar

Instructions

  1. Put the light brown soft sugar, golden syrup and black treacle in a small pan set over a low heat and cook, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Stir in low-fat spread until melted, then remove from the heat and, using a wooden spoon, stir in the plain flour, ground ginger and ground cinnamon until a soft dough forms. Using your hands, form the dough into a disc and wrap in clingfilm, then chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Dust the work surface with plain flour and roll the dough out to a 3mm thickness. Using a 7cm gingerbread man cutter, cut out 25 biscuits, rerolling the trimmings as needed.
  4. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with baking paper, then bake for 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  5. To decorate the biscuits combine the icing sugar and enough water to make a thin icing, start with 1 teaspoon, then pipe over.

Notes
Use other shaped cutters, such as stars, trees or snowflakes, to make these even more festive. The biscuits will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
