Gingerbread biscuit Recipe

This one comes from The Pooh Cookbook, a favourite from my childhood. Nothing Winnie the Pooh does can be wrong. Except selling himself to Disney. Aww... :(

Makes around 18 biscuits

8 rounded tbsp plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
60g Nuttelex
60g brown sugar
2 heaped tbsp golden syrup

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

2. In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, ginger, and cinnamon. Mix to combine.

2. In a saucepan, melt together Nuttelex, brown sugar, and golden syrup, stirring continuously until the mixture is runny but not too hot.

3. Pour the syrup mixture into the dry mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until a dough is formed. It should be fairly soft and easy to mould. If it seems very soft, allow it to stand for a few moments.

4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll with a floured rolling pin to around 1/2cm thick. Cut into whatever shape you like, place on a baking tray, and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and then scoff them all.

Happy eating! :)
