Ginger Biscuits

Ginger Biscuits Printable recipe

Easy to make and delicious, these remind me of childhood holidays to Cornwall. We always bought some Cornish Farthings for my Dad, they came in a tube and the smell when you opened them was lovely and gingery!




170g Self Raising flour
110g soft light brown sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp ginger (more if you like them very gingery!)
60g butter/spread (diced)
1 egg, lightly beaten in a cup
1 tsp golden syrup

Makes 20-25 biscuits preheat oven 180°C (Fan 160°C) GM4

  1. Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda & ginger in a bowl, add the sugar and stir. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until of breadcrumb consistency.
  1. With the beaten egg already in a cup, add the syrup and beat until mixed.
  1. Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix together to make a sticky dough.
  1. Roll teaspoons of the mix into balls and place on a lined/greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly and bake for 12-15 mins until golden and cracked.
  1. Cool for 5 mins on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack or enjoy while still warm! The longer baked the harder the biscuit will be, so bake for longer until deep golden if you like them with a snap. Enjoy ♥
