Baking 12 - 15 minutes
Makes 36 - 40 biscuits (medium size)
90 gram butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup golden syrup
2 - 3 tablespoons of ginger chunks - diced very small - winds up about 1 tablespoon
You can leave out if you are not a ginger addict - the ground ginger will still give a nice ginger flavour to the biscuit mixture.
(I like Buderim Ginger "Naked Ginger") local Queensland product - not crystallised.
1 1/3 cup plain flour (sifted with the following)
3/4 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
3/4 to 1 tablespoon ground ginger (to your taste - I use 1 tablespoon)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Prepare 3 biscuit trays
Preheat oven to 170 Celsius (180 if not using fan)
In a small saucepan (or in microwave jug) - gently melt the butter, sugar and syrup.
Stir in the finely diced ginger and remove from heat.
In a large bowl, sift all the dry ingredients together.
Stir in the (slightly cooled) melted butter mixture and combine well.
Gently roll teaspoon sized mixture into small walnut sized balls with a little room to spread.
I usually have 12 on a tray
Very lightly, flatten slightly with fork tines.
Bake approx 12 minutes until golden. If needed, pop in for another minute and check again. Remove from oven, loosen but leave on tray to cool.
Store in an airtight container.
