Method

  1. Step 1:

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

  2. Step 2:

    Place the flour, bicarb, sugar and ginger in a mixing bowl and add the butter, cut into cubes.

  3. Step 3:

    Rub the butter into the flour until it makes a crumbly mixture then add the syrup and 50g of the crystallised ginger. Mix well until the mixture binds into a soft dough. Try adding 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and a pinch of dried chilli flakes for a spicier biscuit if liked.

  4. Step 4:

    Roll into about 30 small balls and place well apart on the baking trays. Sprinkle with a remaining crystallised ginger and flatten slightly.

  5. Step 5:

    Bake for 12-13 minutes until golden brown.

  6. Step 6:

    Allow to cool and harden on the baking tray for 10 minutes before cooling.
