'Stache Cookies

Follically challenged in the facial region? Here is a temporary solution (about as temporary as you can hold off eating it!) Just cut your biscuit mix into comedy moustache shapes before baking. Here's a picture of my Super Mario inspired tashe, and below that my Poirot inspired tashe!

My biscuit mix was for ginger biscuits. It's super easy, here's how I made it.

I used:
12 oz Self Raising Flour
8 oz Sugar
4 oz Margarine
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1 1/2 tbsp Golden Syrup
1 egg


Melt Margarine and Golden Syrup in a large bowl. You can do this using a bain marie method on the hob or you can do it in the microwave, but be sure to use a medium setting so as not to burn the syrup.

Mix everything else into the bowl.

Roll out mixture onto a surface that is dusted with a little flour. Cut into desired shapes and place shapes onto a lightly greased baking tray, or a tray with a sheet of baking parchment to avoid the biscuits sticking to the tray.

Pop them in your oven, gas mark 3 / 175 degrees for about 15 minutes until golden!

Tashe Tastic!
