I am always cooking, and enjoy being in the kitchen. Over time, have tested quite a few recipes for gingernuts, ginger cookies, whatever you want to call them.
This recipe I made yesterday, and the biscuis are very tasty. Makes 2 trays as well, so very economical.
Why do people buy commercially made biscuits when it is so easy to make your own.


1 3/4 cups SR Flour
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tablespoons Crystallised Ginger, finely chopped
100g butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup golden syrup

Preheat over 160 degrees C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Sift the flour and ground ginger into a large bowl. Add the crystallised ginger.
Place the butter, sugar and golden syrup into a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the butter has melted and allow the mixture to come to the boil.
Remove from heat and add to the dry ingredients, stir to combine.
Place a tablespoon of the mixture onto the baking trays. Leave enough space between each biscuit as mixture will spread during cooking.
Bake for 15 mintues or until slightl golden.
Cook on tray for 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.
