Soften the Butter and mix in the brown sugar
Add in the spices, treacle, maple syrup, vanilla, and egg. Stir thoroughly.
Add in the flour and mix with a spoon and then form to a dough ball using hands
Ideally chill the dough in the refrigerator for an hour. If you have a little person who wants to just make the dough / you don't have enough time, then you can get away with skipping this step and the biscuits will still turn out ok.
Preheat the oven to 350 farenheit / 160 clesius fan oven and line a baking sheet
Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut the Gingerbread men / Cookie shapes out of the dough.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 8-10 minutes
Cool on a wire rack
