In the same way that Easter just isn't Easter without chocolate eggs, October 31st in the Strawberry Sister household just isn't Halloween without the smell of freshly baked gingerbread
men ghosts and ghoulies,
oh and the odd mummy and skeleton...
350g plain flour
175g light soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
Add all of the ingredients to a mixing bowl and combine to form a pastry mix.
Roll out on a floured surface to no more than 1cm thick...
Start cutting out your shapes, they don't need to be perfect - especially for Halloween, a few broken bones make them all the more authentic!
Leave your skeletons/ghosts/zombies on a tray in the fridge for half an hour before baking for 10-15 minutes at 180°C.
Once cooled, ice!
*Warning do not hand out to trick-or-treaters, they're too yummy!
