Gingerbread Rudolph Reindeers

These biscuits look so cute and are really easy to make - they are just upside-down gingerbread men! 
We are still housebound with chicken pox so had to find a recipe that only included ingredients we already had - which was a struggle! This book had the closest we could find...
125g butter 
85g brown sugar (we used light brown)
175ml golden syrup
375g plain flour
2tsp ginger (we used mixed spice)
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
******preheat oven to 190*******
Start by adding the sugar and butter into a bowl
Mix it well until it's smooth! We didn't have real butter and used spreadable so it didn't take long at all 
Add in the flour, spice, and bicarbonate of soda
Then get mummy to help pour in the syrup 
Mix everything together until it becomes a dough
It's safe to say the Zebra likes cookie dough!!
Put the mixture into the fridge for at least 30 minutes. I didn't have any cling film so used a ziplock bag
Roll the dough as thin as possible
Using a gingerbread-man cutter, make your biscuits
Pop into the oven for 8-10 minutes. It seems our biscuit were too thick and took 15 minutes to cook. The Zebra kept a good eye on them for me the whole time 
They also got a lot bigger while cooking than I expected!
Once they have cooled it's time to ice - the "legs" of the gingerbread man become the antlers! You can either ice the eyes, or use googley eyes for decoration. 
They certainly pass the Zebra taste test!
