No: Nuts
Contains: Gluten / Dairy / Egg


  • butter – 130g, cubed
  • brown sugar – 90g
  • vanilla bean paste – 1 tsp
  • egg – 1
  • golden syrup – 110g
  • plain flour – 370g, plus extra for dusting
  • bicarb soda – 1 tsp
  • mixed spice – 1 tsp
  • ginger – 1 tsp, ground


  • egg white – 1
  • icing sugar – 180g



  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Add the cubed butter (130g), brown sugar (90g) and vanilla bean paste (1 tsp) to the bowl. Mix Speed 5 / 20 seconds.
  3. Add the egg (1) to the bowl. Mix Speed 5 / 10 seconds.
  4. Add the golden syrup (110g), plain flour (370g), bicarb soda (1 tsp), mixed spice (1 tsp) and ground ginger (1 tsp) to the bowl. Mix Speed 5 / 40 seconds.
  5. Wrap the dough in clingfilm. Flatten and put into the fridge for 30 minutes.
  6. Place the dough onto a floured bench and knead a little flour into the dough by hand, until it is slightly more firm and can be rolled.
  7. Remove a third of the dough and set aside. We will use this in Step 11.
  8. Flour your rolling pin lightly and roll out the larger portion of dough to approximately 4mm thick. The thicker the dough, the easier it will be to cut shapes out.
  9. Using a 15cm circle cutter, cut a circle from the dough. Cut a 9cm circle inside that one to form a ring.
  10. Repeat until you have 4 dough rings. Set the rings on the prepared trays.
  11. Add any scraps of dough to the set aside dough from earlier.
  12. Flour your rolling pin lightly again and roll out the remaining dough.
  13. Using various sized star shaped cutters, cut shapes from dough and place onto the baking trays with the rings. Leave room between each cookie on the trays.
  14. Bake for 10 minutes or until slightly golden. Do not overcook or they will become very hard.
  15. Allow biscuits to cool slightly on the baking trays, then move to a wire cooling rack to cool.


  1. If you need to make your own icing sugar, add sugar (180g) to the bowl and grind Speed 9 / 10 seconds. Set aside. Clean the mixer bowl.
  2. Place the egg white (1) into the clean mixer bowl. Insert the whisk attachment. Mix Speed 2 / 30-60 seconds, until the egg white is frothy.
  3. Add the icing sugar (180g) to the bowl. Mix Speed 2 / 15 seconds.
  4. Place the icing into a piping bag with a very thin tip and decorate your biscuits.
  5. Use a little leftover icing as “glue” to attach the stars onto the wreath in your desired pattern. Allow to set.
  6. Gift in a small gift box.
  7. Enjoy!
