Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6. Line baking trays with parchment.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in egg, golden syrup, orange juice and orange zest. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, ginger and cloves; stir into the creamed mixture until combined.
Roll dough out to .25cm thickness, and cut into shapes with biscuit cutters. Place on baking trays and bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool biscuits on wire racks.
Very nice flavour, but needed around 600g of flour plus more for rolling out! The dough did stiffen up a bit more when left to sit in a cool place for a while (as I walked to the local shop for more flour!) The thinner you roll the dough, the crispier the biscuits. - 12 Dec 2012
