- 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.
