• 700g plain flour
  • 2tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 4tsp ground ginger
  • 2tsp ground cinnamon
  • 250g butter
  • 350g light soft brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 tbs golden syrup

In a bowl, sift together the flour, soda, ginger and cinnamon. Add the sugar and butter and mix until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. 

Lightly beat together the eggs and syrup in a separate bowl and slowly add to the mixture, until it comes together. Tip out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly. 

Using a snowflake cookie cutter, cut out the dough into shape and place on a baking tray. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes at 180C. Once cooked, place on a wire rack for cooling until completely cooled. 

Stack the snowflake shapes onto top of each other using icing sugar to hold them together. One set, lightly dust with icing sugar.
