1. Melt butter, light syrup, heavy cream and powdered sugar in a medium saucepan. Cool this mixture for 5 minutes before adding in all the other ingredients; flour, baking soda, spices. Mix/knead well before covering and chill overnight. I mix it with the spatula attachment in my stand mixer, for about 10 minutes.
2. Pre-heat oven to 175C (350F) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
3. Roll out your dough on a floured surface. Roll to 3 mm (0.12 inches) thick and cut out using various cookie cutters.

4. Bake on the middle rack for 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before cooling them completely on a cooling rack.
