  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Line a couple of baking sheets with baking parchment.

  2. 2

    Sieve the flour, ginger, bicarbonate of soda and butter into a large bowl and using your fingertips rub the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and stir in.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 350g Plain white flour
    • 1tsp Ginger (ground)
    • 1tsp Bicarbonate of soda
    • 100g Butter (unsalted)
    • 150g Unrefined light muscovado sugar
  3. 3

    Whisk the beaten egg and golden syrup together then add this to the bowl and mix to form a dough.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) large
    • 4 tbsp Golden syrup
  4. 4

    Lightly flour the work surface then roll out the dough until it is 3-4mm thick, then use your letter cutters to cut out the biscuits and carefully transfer onto the baking sheet.

  5. 5

    Place in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes until golden brown.

  6. 6

    Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes then transfer onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

  7. 7

    To decorate, use the food colouring to colour the white icing, kneading the icing until the colour is evenly distributed. Next roll out the icing on a surface that has been lightly dusted with icing sugar, until it is about 5mm thick. Use the same shaped letter cutters as before to cut shapes out of the icing.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 500g White sugar paste icing
    • 1tsp Pink food colouring
  8. 8

    Lightly brush the surface of the biscuit with the apricot jam then carefully place the icing on top. Repeat with the other biscuits then leave to set.
