Aunty Mary’s Ginger Biscuits

I’d forgotten how nice these are. I haven’t made them for years but a bout of intense boredom this afternoon brought on a culinary frenzy. The alternative option was cleaning the bathroom, so I had no choice really.

This is my Aunty Mary’s recipe. Her biscuits live on in sunny Tooting.

Aunty Mary’s ginger biscuits

Makes 8-10

60g / 2oz butter
60g / 2oz golden syrup
30g / 1oz sugar
120g / 4oz self raising flour
half tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp ground ginger

Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas 4. Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup together in a pan. Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into a bowl. Mix butter and syrup mixture into the flour until it forms a slightly sticky dough. Roll into balls and press down with a fork onto a lined baking tray.

Bake for 10 minutes, cool and scoff.
