Gingerbread cookies

The time has come and lets start off with some Christmas cookies.
This year I have bought some mini cookie cutters and want to make tiny cute little gingerbread cookies.

Gingerbread cookies recipe

200g plain flour 
85g soft brown sugar
55g butter
1/2 egg
2. Tbsp golden syrup
1/2. Tsp bicarbonate of soda
1. Tsp ground ginger
1. Tsp mixed spice (I left out) 

Place the flour, ground ginger, bicarbonate of soda and butter into a bowl.
Rub butter into the flour until it looks like bread crumbs.
Add brown sugar, syrup & egg mix to the dry ingredients to form the dough into a ball.
Then chill dough for 15 minutes in the fridge.
Roll out onto a lightly floured Worktop about 1/2 cm thick
Bake in a preheated oven at 180c for 10 - 15 minutes.
Take out the oven to cool completely.
