- 170g plain flour
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- ¼ tsp mixed spice
- ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
- A pinch of salt
- 150g fondant icing
- 2 tbsp water
- Preheat the oven to 160C Fan. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick paper.
- Measure the butter and sugar into a bowl until light and fluffy using a hand whisk. Add the syrup and egg yolk and whisk again. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until the mixture comes together. Knead into a ball.
