A perfect gift for a special occasion.

125g butterShutterstock _223261768
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup golden syrup
1 Egg
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 Tablespoon ground ginger
1 Teaspoon mixed spice
1 Teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Coloured boiled lollies

1 Beat butter, brown sugar and golden syrup
until light and creamy. Add egg, beat well.

2 Stir flour, spices and bicarbonate of soda into creamed mixture, mix until just combined.

3 Turn onto floured surface, knead 1 minute, adding a little extra flour if dough is sticky. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm.

4 Preheat oven to moderate 180C.

5 Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 4mm thick. Cut into large shapes as desired. Cut out a smaller shape in centre of each. If you're making these as decorations, make a small hole in the place where you'd like the ribbon or string to go. Place on baking tray lined with paper.

6 Finely chop or crush coloured boiled lollies. Spoon chopped lollies in heaped mounds into cut-out centre of dough

7 Bake 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool.
