  1. Sift together the flour, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon into a clean bowl. Add the butter in chunks.
  2. Using your fingers, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Gently microwave the syrup to loosen its consistency. Once cooled down a bit, add the egg and lightly beat together.
  4. Pour the syrup and egg mixture into the flour mixture and combine with a plastic spatula.
  5. Turn the combined mixture onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough until soft. Wrap the dough in cling film and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line two baking trays with baking parchment.
  7. Remove the dough from the fridge. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 0.25 inches (0.5 cm) thick.
  8. Using a cookie cutter, cut the dough into desired shapes. Place them on the baking trays, leaving space for spreading.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
