A lovely in-betweener for lunch boxes, with a cup of tea or coffee, even a glass of red wine!
Switch oven on 190º C
Prepare baking sheets with non-stick spray
brown sugar (1½ cups)
golden syrup (¾ cups)
Sieve together all the DRY INGREDIENTS:
bicarbonate of soda (1 tspn)
ground ginger (2 tspn)
ground Cinnamon (2 tspn)
ground cloves (1 tspn)
Fold dry ingredients into the creamed mixture to make a stiff dough.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes if too sticky, and then add a bit of flour if necessary.
Roll out ±3 mm on a floured board, press out fun shapes.
Bake for 10 minutes or until slightly brown around the edges.
Note: Replace part of the golden syrup with molasses for a darker biscuit with an exquisite taste – goes very well with red wine!
