I'm very happy with the results. I read through a lot of reviews and made notes before making them. I made just one batch and separated the dough into four, and then pressed flat between glad wrap so I didn't have to wait so long for it to set. I used butter, golden syrup, doubled the spices, and substituted allspice for cloves. Yes the dough is wet and crumbly and sticks to everything, but you just have to flour the work surface and rolling pin every time you roll and I had no problem at all. Use a spatula to get the men onto the tray if needed. And being Summer in Australia, I know to work fast because the dough will go back to room temperature in less than 5 minutes! I experimented with various thicknesses and will now make a batch to give away for Christmas. I would also suggest popping the baking trays with uncooked men back in the fridge for ten minutes first to help them keep their shape and not spread too much.
