Preheat the oven to 160C/gas mark 3.

Mix together the flour, sugar and spices in a bowl. Rub the butter into the mixture with the ends of your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Beat the egg and syrup together in a jug.

Make a well in the middle of the flour mix and add the egg mix. Mix together with a knife and then your hands until you get a ball of soft dough.

Wrap in cling film and pop in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Roll out until about 1/2cm thick. Cut out about 32 biscuits with a star cutter. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.

Cool on a rack. Dust with icing sugar and ground cinnamon.
