Gingerbread Biscuits

I baked these for the kid's birthday party yesterday and they went down a treat! 

200g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground ginger
100g brown sugar
50g butter
1 small egg
1 tablespoon golden syrup

Sieve the flour, baking powder and ginger into a bowl.  Rub the butter into the mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs and stir in the sugar.  

Mix the egg and syrup in a small bowl and add to the centre of the dry mixture.  Mix well until you have a dough and knead until it becomes smooth.

Roll out the dough on a flour surface (or directly onto baking paper) and cut out your desired shapes.  Bake for 10-12 minutes at 180C until golden and let the biscuits cool on a wire rack before eating.
