Here's how easy it is...
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 180° (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.
  2. 2. Heat the butter and sugar in a saucepan, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the condensed milk and stir together.
  3. 3. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into a bowl and pour in the syrupy mixture. Start by working the ingredients together with a spoon then with clean hands bring the mixture together into a soft dough.
  4. 4. Roll the gingerbread out on a floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin. Cut gingerbread men out and place onto a baking sheet. Bake the biscuits for about 10 minutes until just golden. Cool completely before decorating with icing and sweets.
  5. These biscuits will keep for about a week in an airtight container.
