If you are looking for a last minute Christmas present or just want to eat something yummy, here is a simple gingerbread cookies recipe that is perfect for Christmas time. 

Makes about 40 cookies

You will need:

100g brown sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 egg yolk

Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and creamy.
Mix in the golden syrup and egg yolk.
Sift in the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined.

Knead the dough on a four surface until smooth.
Cover the dough in cling-film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough on a floury surface until 1-2cm thick.
Cut shapes from the dough using any cookie cutters desired. 
Place the cookies 3cm apart on a greased baking tray.
Bake at 180c for 10 minutes or until firm (depends on the size of the shapes).

Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
