Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C. Mix butter, sugar and syrup in a pan. Stir and heat on low temperature until the butter melts. Add the spices and baking powder and stir. Add the water and stir. Add the flour and stir until it is completely mixed in. Empty the mixture into a bowl and let cool. Cover with cling film and leave the dough to rest in the fridge overnight. Take a small piece of dough and keep the rest in the fridge. Roll it out thinly on a baking sheet. Cut it into shapes using cookie cutters or a knife. Bake for 5-8 minutes until golden brown.
