This recipe makes the perfect ginger biscuit, great for dunking or munching with a cup of tea or coffee. Plus they can last for a week if stored in a cake tin...that's if you don't eat them all before then!

Method

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

  2. Place the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger in a mixing bowl and add the butter, cut into cubes. Rub the butter into the flour until it makes a crumbly mixture.

    • 225g Self-Raising White Flour (We use Allinson)
    • 1tsp Bicarbonate of soda
    • 2tsp Ginger (ground)
    • 125g Butter (unsalted)
  3. Stir in the sugar and syrup. Mix well until the mixture binds into a soft dough.

    • 100g Unrefined Light Muscovado Sugar (We use Billington's)
    • 100g Golden syrup
  4. Roll into about 30 small balls and place well apart on the baking trays.

  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool and harden on the baking tray for 10 minutes before eating.

    These are so easy to make and taste delicious.
    I like a very hot gingery taste, so substituted 30g of the golden syrup with Ginger Syrup(I use Opies).
    These have a great fiery kick.
