Failsafe Christmas 'gingerbread' Santas


You won't know the ginger has been left out of these gingerbread shapes. Fun to make and good for a plate to take to a party.

125 g butter or Nuttelex
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup golden syrup
3 tsp sodium bicarbonate
1 egg
3 cups plain flour

Preheat oven to 180°C. Dissolve butter, sugar and golden syrup in the microwave or in a saucepan over low heat. When lukewarm, stir in bicarbonate and egg. Place flour in bowl, make a well in the centre and add other ingredients. Knead to form a dough, roll out on a floured surface and cut into gingerbread man shapes. Bake for 15 minutes. Decorate with plain white or citric acid flavoured 'lemon' icing and commercial mini Santa hats or make your own (red felt triangles and cotton balls) for Christmas.
