Ginger Syrup Biscuit Cookie Recipe!

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.

Step 1

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.


Step 2

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.



Step 3

Bake in the centre of the oven for approximately 20 minutes. Then cool on a wire rack and enjoy!



Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

It feels like I haven’t posted a recipe for quite sometime, so true to form today I am bringing you a childhood favourite Peanut Butter Cookies! These are so quick and simple and very moreish.

What You’ll Need

5 oz S.R. flour

4 oz caster sugar

4 oz soft margarine

1 tablespoon liquid coffee

1 desert spoon crunchy peanut butter

Oven 350F, 180C (or adjust for a fan oven), Gas 4.

Step 1

Cream the margarine and sugar thoroughly.

Step 2

Mix in the liquid coffee and peanut butter.

Step 3

Add the flour and roll handfuls of the mixture into walnut sized balls and place on a greased backing tray. I prefer to use baking parchment so that you do not need to put grease on the tray but either works. I flatten the balls with my fingertips.

Step 4

Bake in a moderate oven for about 20 mins.


Note. My picture of ingredients show Morrisons but I am not being paid by them it is my nearest supermarket.
