These traditional buttery and crisp biscuits keep well in a tin for 3-4 days - if you can save them that long.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4). Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

  2. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan over a low heat.

    • 100g Butter (unsalted) (room temperature)
    • 100g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (We use Billington's)
    • 2tbsp Golden syrup
  3. Sift the flour, ginger, mixed spice, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt together into a bowl, then tip in the melted butter mixture and gently stir to form a smooth dough.

    • 175g Self-Raising White Flour (We use Allinson)
    • 2tsp Ginger (ground)
    • 0.5tsp Mixed spice (ground)
    • 0.5tsp Cinnamon (ground)
    • 0.5tsp Bicarbonate of soda
    • Pinch Salt
  4. Place heaped teaspoonfuls of the mixture on to baking sheets, about 3cm apart to allow room for them to spread. Flatten slightly with a knife.

  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool and harden on the baking tray for 10 minutes before cooling.
