    About this recipe: I found this recipe recently on the web, but I believe originally the recipe came from Good Housekeeping magazine. Although I have changed a couple of things from the original.

    Serves: 24 

    • 1/2 cup caster suger
    • 1/2 cup treacle
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon ginger
    • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 3 1/2 cups of plain flour

    Prep:45min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:5min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. In a large saucepan heat sugar, treacle, ginger, mixed spice and cinnamon till it comes to the boil. Stirring occasionally.
    2. Remove from heat and stir in bicarbonate of soda.
    3. Add butter and stir gently till melted.
    4. With a fork, stir in egg, then gradually add the flour.
    5. Dough will appear crumbly, but one you start kneading, dough will come together nicely.
    6. Wrap one half of the dough in glad wrap. This will stop it drying out until your ready to use it. - Do not put in the fridge it will go too hard.
    7. Roll dough to about half a cm thick ( thicker or thinner depending on taste), cut with favourite cutters.
    8. Bake at 165 C for about 10 mins ( fanforced/ convection)
