Prep time


Total time





  1. 1

    Mix together, in a large bowl, the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and cinnamon. In another bowl, heat the butter, in the microwave until just melted. Then add the sugar, syrup and egg and stir well.

  2. 2

    Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix together. Add the Crunchie Inclusions and knead in to form a dough. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until firm.

  3. 3

    Preheat the oven to 160 °C fan, 180 °C conventional, gas mark 4 and have ready 3 baking trays lines with non-stick baking paper.

  4. 4

    On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of about 0.5 cm. Using cutters, cut out the size or sizes of gingerbread men required and place on the baking trays. Allow room to spread a little and cook in batches if necessary. Repeat with any off cuts.

  5. 5

    Bake for about 8-9 minutes for regular sized biscuits, a little longer for larger biscuits and a little less time for small ones. Allow to cool.
