Makes about 30 - Prep 15 mins (+ 30 mins chilling time) - Cooking 15 mins

Ingredients: 
125 g butter, softened
1/2 cup (110g) brown sugar
1/2 cup (125ml) golden syrup
1 Coles Brand Australian Free Range Egg yolk
2 1/2 cups (375g) plain flour
1 tbsp Coles Brand Ground Ginger
1 tsp Coles Brand Mixed Spice
Queen Royal Icing, to decorate
Smarties or M&M’s, to decorate

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, sugar and golden syrup together in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the egg yolk and beat to combine. Add flour, ginger and mixed spice. Stir to combine. Use your hands to knead until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
2. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to a 3mm-thick disc. Use a 7cm gingerbread man cutter to cut out shapes and place on the lined tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.
3. Make royal icing following packet directions. Place icing in a piping bag fitted with a 2mm plain nozzle. Pipe icing onto each gingerbread man and decorate with Smarties or M&M’s.
