1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon ground mixed spice
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon cinnamon
275g plain flour

Beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Stir in the egg a little at a time until it’s fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth.
Sift in the flour, spices and baking powder, then stir to form a soft dough. Chill it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180˚C/Gas 4. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 5mm thick. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters and place them on a lightly greased baking tray, leaving a little space between each. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
Cool on a wire rack then decorate as you wish
