In our house we normally always have a biscuit tin with homemade biscuits in. When I was making this video, the tin was almost empty so it was perfect timing. My husband Howard and son Ted really enjoy these Gingerbread Men and Women. I thought the recipe would make a great video. These biscuits are so easy and they are great to make with children on a rainy afternoon.

Makes 24 – 36
