In a medium saucepan, Stir together the butter, dark brown soft sugar and golden syrup over medium heat until dissolved. Pour into a large mixing bowl and let cool for 5 minutes. Stir the egg and vanilla into the melted mixture until smooth. Sieve together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, ginger and cloves; stir into the wet mixture. Cover and chill dough for a few hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F ( 165 degrees C ).
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 5mm thickness. Cut into bear shapes with a cookie cutter and place onto an unprepared baking tray. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, biscuits should be firm.
lovely recipe. Kids were eating the dough before I could cut it. Just one suggestion, roll dough on baking paper and cover with more paper. Then place in freezer for 10mins rather than overnight in the fridge. Cuts down the waiting time. - 13 Dec 2012
