We were running low on food in the house and Mum was calling in for a cup of tea. Time to make some biscuits! With limited staples in the pantry, I think these turned out really well and will become a regular I think! The spices can be adjusted to taste, the pattern on top can be there or not and they are really quick. The recipe makes about 24 – depends on how much is taste tested while rolling – which are slightly crispy on the outside and softer on the inside.
50g brown sugar
100g golden syrup
150g self raising flour
1 tspn ground ginger
1 tspn mixed spice
1 tspn ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to moderate, 180ºC.
- Place butter, brown sugar, and golden syrup in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until butter has melted.
- Remove from heat and cool slightly – about 5 minutes.
- Add flour and spices to the butter mixture and stir to combine.
- Make heaped teaspoonfuls into balls and flatten slightly using the back of a spoon or be fancy and put fork marks on top!
- Bake for 10 minutes until golden, cool for 3-4 minutes on tray then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
