I’ve been told many times how very good ginger is for you. It calms the stomach and aids digestion, is reported to help arthritis suffers and lower the cholesterol for those suffering from heart disease. It’s also supposed to help with sneezing and sore throats. However most of these uses are fairly untested and therefore unproven, but one thing about ginger that I can say without any doubt is……. it makes yummy biscuits! So today I am sharing our Ginger Syrup Biscuit/Cookie Recipe.
What You’ll Need
4oz, 100g butter or margarine
4oz , 100g sugar,
1 tablespoon syrup
8ozs, 200g S.R. flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Half teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon milk
Optional stem ginger in syrup.
Preheat the oven to 300 F, 150C, Gas 2.
In a large bowl cream together the butter/margarine, sugar and syrup. Stir in the flour and ginger.
Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the milk and add to the mixture. Form the mixture into balls using your hands and place on a lined/greased baking tray. If you’re using some stem ginger, cut it into small pieces and place one piece into the centre of each biscuit.
Bake in the centre of the oven for approximately 20 minutes. Then cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
