Christmas Biscuits

Ingredients for Christmas Biscuits

85g of wholemeal flour
85g of plain flour
50g of butter
4 tablespoons of golden syrup
2 tablespoons of ground ginger
Half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda

Baking Instructions for Christmas Biscuits

Preheat the oven to 190C.

Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, the ginger and the cinnamon into a mixing bowl.

In a small pan melt the butter and golden syrup over a gentle heat.

Pour the butter and syrupy mixture into the dry mixture in the mixing bowl.

Mix the ingredients by hand so that they form a firm dough.

Powder a table top or rolling board with some flour so that the mixture will not stick.

Roll the dough with a rolling pin until it is about 5mm thick or a desired biscuit depth. If you prefer chunkier biscuits then make the thickness larger though you will make less Christmas biscuits.

Stamp out the fun Christmas shapes and re-roll any excess dough to make more biscuits.

Place on a greased baking tray and bake for about 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and set aside to cool down, though they will be delicious served warm in several minutes. Do not be tempted by the smell and resist eating the Christmas biscuits until they have cooled down a bit - they will be really hot!

Serve with a cup of tea.
