Halloween Ginger Biscuits

I'm new to baking cakes but I've been making these iced ginger biscuits for 6 years but only seem to make them at Halloween and Christmas.

Preheat oven to 190C

Put 150g plain flour in a bowl and add 1tsp of ground ginger and 75g butter. Rub in the butter until it resembles fine bread crumbs

Add 50g caster sugar and 2 tbsp golden syrup. Mix together until you have a dough and knead lightly. Roll dough out and cut out shapes (we used pumpkin, bat and circle [full moon] cutters).

The Jellyfish hard at work

Place shapes on a baking sheet (I used baking paper on the tray) and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden. Cool on a wire rack before decorating

Make up icing according to the packet. I added orange flavouring and red and yellow colouring. Spread onto cooled biscuits and sprinkle on hundreds and thousands
