About this recipe: These are the best gingerbread men I've ever eaten. This gingerbread recipe doesn't call for all the treacle common in many recipes. They have a nice light flavour with a hint of orange.

Used different ingredients. I don't like treacle so used golden syrup instead. Just a personal taste thing with me. - 22 Dec 2010
Absolutely delicious recipe! Flavour with the orange and cloves is a nice twist. They turned out really well. Although for some reason the mixture above was really wet so I needed to add significantly more flour so it was more dough like. - 25 Dec 2009
Love this recipe with the hint of orange and cloves combining really well with the ginger. Tastes of cold winter nights by a warm fire. The mixture for me was fine, didn't find it too wet unlike other review - but flour amount may of be changed since then. - 22 Dec 2010
