Ginger Nuts Recipe

I have happy memories of winter days with family and friends sitting in front of a log fire with a cup of coffee and ginger nuts. Dunking of course! I crush these biscuits and use them as a base for an orange infused chocolate tart. This is a match made in heaven.

Yields : about 33

Ingredients :

120g Self Raising Flour

Pinch Salt

10ml Ground Ginger Powder

½ t Bicarbonate of Soda

45g White Sugar

60g Salted Butter

60g Golden Syrup

Method :

1) Sift the flour, salt, ginger, bicarb and sugar together

2) Heat the butter and the syrup until melted in the microwave

3) Mix the melted butter and syrup into the dry ingredients to form a soft mixture

4) Shape into the desired shapes and place onto a greased tray

5) Bake at 180'C until cooked for about 10 – 15 minutes

Please post your comments and any food-related questions below.

I look forward to hearing from you.
