Gingerbread GIANTS!

So Vin had a craving for Gingerbread men and I felt like baking something so we did :D

They were supposed to be Gingerbread men but mutated into GIANTS!!! I think coz we added way more Self-raising flour and Vin kneaded the dough heaps.. so they're softer than normal but still taste delicious :)

Here's what you need:
125g margarine
2 tbs golden syrup (i didn't have any so i just used maple syrup)
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
3 cups self-raising flour (can add more if needed)
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 165oC.
2. Melt butter and syrup. Mix in sugar and egg.
3. Add sifted flour, salt, ginger and cinnamon and mix well. Dough should come away from the sides of the bowl.
4. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface and use cutter to cut biscuits.
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until a delicate golden brown colour.

Men turning into GIANTS!

ROYAL ICING (Vin's favourite icing) 1 egg white
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup icing sugar, sifted

1. Whisk eggs whites with lemon juice using electric mixer until soft peaks form.
2. Add sifted icing sugar slowly while still mixing.
