Ginger Biscuits

I wanted to make these biscuits as I had bought a packet of supermarket own range and my husband said they had a weird taste. These are so easy to make and bake and taste delicious. They are exactly what you would imagine from a ginger biscuit - crunchy and a big hit of ginger! They passed the Husband taste test!!!!

Start by pre-heating the oven to 190 degrees centigrade (170 fan) then line two baking trays with baking parchment and set aside.

In a small pan put the butter, sugar and golden syrup and melt on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.



In a medium sized bowl put the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ground ginger and mixed spice.



Add the butter/sugar mixture into the bowl and mix. The mixture will come away from the edges when fully incorporated.



Divide the mixture into 10 balls (roughly 25g), slightly flatten and place on the prepared trays.



Bake for 10-12 minutes.


leave to cool on the trays until set then cool on a wire rack.



You can also decorate them with dark chocolate and crystallised ginger.
