The adults (as Little Bee calls the staff at her nursery) asked if I was coming to the pre-school Halloween party. Oh well… I can never say no to their parties as most of the kids are adorable!
So, on top of the pumpkin pie I took over this morning, I’ve also made some ginger dead men
1tsp bicarbonate soda
2tsp ginger powder
1tsp mixed spices
100g unsalted butter
175g soft brown sugar
3tbsp golden syrup
- Sift the flour, bicarbonate soda, ginger powder and mixed spices into a bowl and mix. Add butter and mix it until it resembles crumbles. Add the sugar and mix further. Slightly beat the egg and golden syrup together and mix until it becomes a dough.
- Heat the oven at gas mark 4 (180C)
- Roll the dough out to your desired thickness and cut into your desired cookie shape. Place the shaped dough on to a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for about 12 minutes.
- Cool them on a cooling rack.
