Ginger Biscuits for Bean...

...and anyone else who would like the recipe!

Cream together:

5oz/142 gms butter
1 egg
1 cup sugar (I use castor sugar)
1 tablespoon golden syrup

Then add:

2 cups self-raising flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon bi-carb soda

Roll into walnut sized balls (I flatten them slightly). Dip tops in sugar. Arrange on greased (I use olive oil) baking trays (sugar side up), leaving room for spreading.

Bake in 180C (I think that is about 350'F) oven for about 20 minutes.

Enjoy, but be warned...they are addictive!!


  1. Oooo! That sounds wonderful!

  2. Thank you Lynda - I will try these out very soon :)

  3. Hi ladies - we finished the last of the biscuits off with our after church cuppa today :o)

  4. I made the cookies on Sunday, they were good, and yes I can confirm that they are addictive :)

  5. I can say without a doubt that these are great! The recipe was a hit, Thanks Lynda

  6. Hi Bean and Sharm - glad you enjoyed the cookies! I try not to make them unless I am taking them somewhere to share with others, because if they stay here...I eat them all!!

    Probably not the healthiest thing to do :o)
