Ginger bears

Yield: 12 bears

Measure Ingredient
2 ounces Butter
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.
