Very quick and easy to make, they are so gingery and a real taste of Christmas! They cook in less than 10 minutes what could be better!
I’ve made these with cooking live with Yui on Instagram, we were dipping biscuits and bread sticks in chocolate, I’ve used 70% dark chocolate with a few drops of orange blossom water in as well!
- 100 grams butter cubed
- 1 1/2 tbsp ground ginger
- 1 knob fresh ginger finely grated
- 100 grams golden syrup
- 1 egg yolk whisked
- 250 grams self raising flour
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 75 grams soft brown sugar
Set the oven temperature to 170 degrees. Cube the butter, throw it in a saucepan. Next put in the sugar.
Grate the fresh ginger, add that to the pan and then the golden syrup.
Turn on the heat to a medium setting so it softens and melts the mixture.
Meanwhile in bowl, add the ground ginger, flour and bicarbonate.
In a separate bowl, add the egg yolk and whisk it with a fork.
Add the egg to the flour and mix well.
Once the syrup mixture is melted, stir and leave to cook, to speed up the process, you can put the pan in cold sink of water.
Once it’s cooked slowly add it to the flour.
Keep stirring until smooth.
Line a large baking tray with baking paper. I used a tablespoon measure to scoop out equal quantities of the mixture! It makes approximately 20 biscuits. Roll them into a ball and place on to the baking tray.
Bake them in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
Allow them to cool and serve !
