An old-fashioned ginger biscuits recipe. Made by rubbing in butter and forming a dough with golden syrup. Perfect with a cuppa.
Servings: 45 small biscuits
- 225 grams SR flour (1 3/4 cup)
- 55 grams caster sugar (1/4 cup)
- 85 grams butter
- 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 4 tablespoons golden syrup (use only enough to form a dough)
Pre-heat oven to moderate (170 degrees celsius, fan forced).
Sieve flour, bicarb soda and ginger together into a bowl.
Chop butter into cubes and rub into dry mixture.
Add sugar and stir through mixture.
Add enough of the golden syrup to bind the mixture together to form a dough. Add a little additional syrup if required.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and roll out as thinly as possible.
Use a small round cutter (about 5cm diameter) to cut out biscuits.
Place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake for 7-10 minutes.
Allow to cool.
