  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160˚C fan). Measure the flour, spices, salt, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a bowl.

  2. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a pan. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix. Lightly knead together to make a dough.

  3. Form the dough into 10 balls. Pinch out one end of the balls to form a point, then flatten with your hand. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes until the cookies are lightly golden but still slightly soft.

  4. Using a skewer, make a slit on either side of the cookie heads for the antlers to slot in then leave to cool for a few minutes. Decorate each cookie with lengths of Curly Wurly for the antlers and halved glacé cherries for the nose. Take two M&Ms of the same colour for the eyes and dot with black icing for the pupils.
