Yield: 12 bears
|1 ounce||Caster sugar|
|2 ounces||White flour|
|2 ounces||Wholewheat flour|
|\N \N||Sweets, chocolate, etc.|
|1 teaspoon||Baking powder|
|1 teaspoon||Ground ginger|
|1 tablespoon||Golden syrup|
Set the oven to 180 C (350 F, Gas Mark 4) and line two large baking sheets with nonstick paper.
Put the butter or margarine into a bowl with the caster sugar and beat together until they are light and creamy. Add the flours, baking powder, ginger and syrup, and beat again to make a dough. On a lightly floured board, roll out the dough to 2½ mm (⅛ inch), then cut into teddy bears. Put the biscuits on the baking sheets -- they won't spread much.
Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the biscuits look golden brown, set and are browning a little more at the edges. Leave to cool on the sheets, then decorate, using glace icing, little sweets, hundreds of thousands, some melted chocolate.
