    Hey everyone

    I made the gingerbread men from the new magazine tonight and I am so pleased with them I thought I would share them with you....

    For those who dont have the magazine here is the recipe for those who want to give them a go. :)

    GINGERBREAD MEN - 1 1/2 syns per biscuit - all choices

    7oz/198g plain flour
    4tsp ground ginger
    3tsp ground cinnamon
    1tsp bicarbonate of soda
    2oz/57g low fat spread suitable for baking(such as Flora Light)
    6 tbsp artificial sweetener
    2 small eggs
    fry light
    1oz/28g icing
    Icing sugar to decorate (optional)

    1 - Preheat your oven to 180oc/350of/gas4.

    2 - Mix the flour, spices and bicarbonate of soda, then rub in the low fat spread. Once the mixture looks like breadcrumbs add the sweetner.

    3 - In a seperate bowl whisk the eggs and then add to flour mixture and form into a dough. Place on a clean floured work surface and knead for a minute or two until smooth. Roll out until 1/4in/5mm thick, then use a mini gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut 30 shapes.
    (If you want to make these at a later date to hang on your xmas tree, then make a hole at the top of each man using a skewer or straw).

    4 - Lay the men on a non stick baking tray lightly sprayed with Fry Light and bake for 10/15 mins until golden brown, then leave to cool.

    5 - When cool decorate with icing and sprinkle with icing sugar (1syn per level tsp)if you like.

    ENJOY! xxxxxxx

    How many did they make? I saw in the mag they are supposed to make THIRTY but I think that was probably a little generous :/

    Did they actually taste nice when you made them?

    I made these last week and they were absolutely rank - dry, stodgy, and went soft after one day despite being kept in an air tight container.

    I do have a history of being very poor at baking cakes and biscuits however so it could just be me....

    But I think someone else had posted on the forum saying theirs didnt taste good either.
