I love these biscuits. A friend gave me the recipe and I have slightly modified it - mainly adding more ginger.
9oz plain flour
half-teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
6oz golden syrup
4 teaspoons ground ginger
a little of the syrup from a jar of stem ginger
grated piece of ginger
Melt the butter with the golden syrup over a gentle heat. Add the grated ginger and the syrup from the jar (optional).
Sieve the flour, ground ginger and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl.
Add the syrup mixture and mix well.
Form into rounds (about 8) and put on a greased baking tray.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes in a moderate oven.
Cool on a wire tray.
