1 lb. flour, ¼ lb. butter, about 6 ounces or sugar, 10 ounces of golden syrup, 1 egg, 1 teaspoonful each baking soda, spice, and ground ginger. 2 teaspoonfuls of ground cinnamon. Mix all thoroughly; turn out, and knead to a firm dough, adding more flour if necessary. Roll out, cut into small shapes, and bake in a rather quick oven for ten minutes.
