Pour in the condensed milk and combine.
Sift all the dry ingrediants through a seive into a bowl.
Pour the hot condensed milk mixture into the bowl with the dry ingrediants.
Using a spoon work the ingredients together then using your fingers bring the mixture together to form a soft dough.
Roll the gingerbread out on a floured surface to a reasonable thickness - around half a cm.

(If you're making Christmas Tree decorations: use a skewer or thin knife to pierce a small hole at the top of your biscuits for the ribbon)
