Vicky’s Mum’s Ginger Biscuits

Ginger Cookies

When a trip into town for a taste of these biscuits was the highlight of my week, I just knew I had to get the recipe. It took some begging!

  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 heaped tsp powdered ginger
  • A little salt
  • 125g butter or margarine
  • 2 Tbs golden syrup

Makes 24

  1. Line 2 biscuit trays with baking paper. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Rub butter through dry ingredients until mixture resembles breadcrumbs
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together egg and golden syrup. Tip eggs into flour mixture and combine using a cutting action rather than stirring.
  4. Once the mixture comes together, take a teaspoon a time and roll into a ball. Place on biscuit trays with enough room to allow for spreading, and use three fingers to depress the top and flatten the balls a little.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
