Biscuits from childhood often bring back fond memories - adding to their status as comfort food! Here’s a low Syn version of gingerbread biscuits; it’s up to you whether to make them into gingerbread men! (Raisins for eyes optional of course!)

ingredients

  • 150g plain flour
  • 60g self raising flour
  • 60g cornflour
  • 25g artificial sweetener
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp finely chopped glacé ginger
  • 2 level tbsp butter
  • 2 level tbsp low fat soft cheese
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp almond or vanilla essence

method

  1. Sift the plain flour, self-raising flour, cornflour, sweetener and ground ginger into a bowl and mix. Mix in the glacé ginger.
  2. Beat together the butter, low fat soft cheese, oil, egg and essence in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture and mix quickly into a dough, if too dry, add a few drops of cold water. Knead gently, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a floured board and roll out to ½cm thickness. Cut into 30 shapes and place on a lined baking sheet. Bake at 170°C/150°C Fan/Gas 3 for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool before serving.
