Have fun with your kids baking lovely biscuits which you can decorate your Christmas tree with! To create different shapes, use various cutters, printable templates available for download here or your own paper templates. After you finish your gingerbread men and women, stars and hearts - or any other shapes that take your fancy - get ready for the bit that is the most fun: getting your children to decorate the biscuits!

Melt the butter, sugar and syrup. Stir until the mixture cools down. Add the egg.

Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in a little water and mix in the spices. Add the flour. Form into a dough and leave overnight.

Roll out the dough and cut out various shapes. Bake at 200 °C for about 8 minutes.

The icing
Using an electric whisk, beat all the ingredients into a stiff mixture. Spoon into a plastic bag and pipe patterns onto the gingerbread biscuits.
