Dog Biscuits - A Step by Step Guide

We didn’t have a gingerbread man cutter so we made do with dogs.

Rub the butter into the flour and spices.

Roll out the dough.

Cut out the shapes then bake.

Decorate. Don't eat all the dogs' spots first.

Gingerbread Dalmations
Makes a lot
300g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground cinnamon
100g diced butter, diced
125g light muscovado
4 tbsp golden syrup

1 egg, beaten

icing sugar and tiny choc buttons

Preheat the oven to 180 - 190C depending on how hot your oven is.

Sift the flour, bicarb and spices into a bowl. Rub in the butter then stir in the sugar, syrup and egg. Knead to make a smooth dough.

Roll out onto a floured surface until about 3 - 5 mm thick then stamp out shapes. Bake on non-stick sheets for 6 - 8 minutes until golden brown. Leave on the baking sheets to cool slightly, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Decorate with icing and chocolate.
