My kids did like gingerbread men however this one has a lot less sugar and they love it just as much. I think it was a cross between a few recipes while looking for a not as sweet alternative. I prefer the Golden Syrup as it has a stronger taste. We like to decorate them with Queen writing icing which works best if the biscuits are cold.

Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 65g Butter
  • 160ml Honey or Golden Syrup
  • 280g Plain Flour
  • 1t Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1.5t Ginger
  • 1t Mixed Spice
  • 1/4t Cloves
  • 1 1/2T Milk
  • 5 Queen Writing Icing


  1. In a saucepan melt butter and honey always stirring. Bring to the boil then take off the heat. Let it cool for a few minutes.
  2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Knead. Will be soft at first but slowly add a little flour till it's not sticky and easily rolled. Roll the dough to the biscuit thickness you like. Cut shapes and place on baking tray slightly apart.
  3. Bake at 180 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Let cool before decorating.
