Finnish Spice Biscuits

More biscuits for the Christmas season! This time a recipe that is supposedly from Finland - I am not convinced because the ingredients include golden syrup, which I suspect is not a particularly Finnish thing.
Finnish Spice Biscuits

1 cup caster sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 teaspoons ground cardamon
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
250 melted butter
3 and a half cups of plain flour

Beat sugar, egg, golden syrup, bicarb and spices. Slowly add the butter, beating until just combined. Sift the flour over it, and stir until the dough comes together. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Wrap in greaseproof paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until firm.

Heat an oven to 180 degrees. Roll out dough between sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Cut out shapes. Bake 10-12 minutes. Allow the biscuits to cool on the tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
