This is how I made them! (Recipe from www.taste.com.au )Ingredients:
- Melted butter, to grease
- 125g butter, at room temperature
- 100g (1/2 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
- 125ml (1/2 cup) golden syrup
- 1 egg, separated
- 375g (2 1/2 cups) plain flour
- 1 tbs ground ginger
- 1 tsp mixed spice
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- Plain flour, to dust
- 150g (1 cup) pure icing sugar, sifted
- liquid food colouring
- Smarties and Hundreds & Thousands to decorate
Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush 2 baking trays with melted butter to lightly grease. Use an electric beater to beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the golden syrup and egg yolk and beat until combined. Stir in the flour, ginger, mixed spice and bicarbonate of soda. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Press dough into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until brown. Remove from oven. Transfer to a rack to cool.
Meanwhile, place egg white in a clean, dry bowl. Use an electric beater to beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add icing sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Divide icing among several bowls and add liquid colouring to create desired colours. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge.
