Ingredients

6 ounces all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon mixed spice
ground
*
2 ounces butter
chilled and cubed
3 ounces brown sugar, light
2 tablespoons golden syrup
heated
*
1 each eggs
beaten

Directions

Preheat oven.

Grease two baking sheets.

Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spice into a bowl.

Rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Stir in the sugar.

Add the golden syrup and egg and mix to form a dough.

Gently knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth, the roll out to ¼ inch thick.

Use christmas cutters to cut out 16 shapes.

Lift shapes on to baking sheets and bake until just firm to the touch.

Make a hole large enough for gold thread at the top of each biscuit.

Transfer to cooling rack and leave until cold.

To decorate, roll out fondant icing on a clean surface dusted with icing sugar.

Cut out shapes with cutters and place on biscuits, securing them with a little water.

Make a hole for thread as before.

Decorate with piped glace icing, silver balls, sweets or coconut.

Thread each biscuit with gold thread and hang on Christmas tree, if liked.
