Recipe from Yasmin
Images by Yasmin and Alana

This is one of the first treats I made as a child. It is definitely a favourite classic! These gingerbread biscuits can be used on any occasion - Easter, Christmas, Birthdays etc. To suit each occasion just change the shape of the biscuits. These particular biscuits are made for the Christmas season. These Biscuits can be served plain or decorated with piped normal icing (see Icings and Sauces for icing recipe). Seasons Greetings! NOTE: I always find it best to make a double batch, for my family it lasts a bit longer!

  • 125g margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk, well beaten
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp bi-carb soda
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1tsp mixed spice
Beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add well beaten egg yolk. Add sifted dry ingredients to mixture. Pour in warm golden syrup and knead mixture lightly.
