Have a go at making Gingerbread Mummies just in time for Halloween. This recipe is so easy that even the kids can help out!
100g Dark Muscovado Sugar
3.5 tbsp Golden Syrup
300g Plain Flour
1tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
2tsp Ground Ginger
Icing (add water 1tsp at a time until you get a smooth icing)
1) Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan over a medium heat being careful not to let the mixture burn.
2) In a separate bowl sieve the flour, then add the bicarbonate of soda, ground ginger and cinnamon. Add the butter, sugar and golden syrup mix to the dry ingredients in the bowl and combine with a wooden spoon until a stiff dough is formed.
3) Roll out the gingerbread on a lightly floured surface- thinner dough makes a more crunchy biscuit, thicker dough makes a softer biscuit. Using a gingerbread man cutter, cut out your shapes, re-rolling the dough when you run out of room.
