March 21, 2018

 

 

Today's cookery club involved making some scrummy ginger biscuits. We took some photos of the process but, unfortunately, they were so delicious that we didn't get time to photograph the actual biscuits before they were eaten

 

Ingredients

225g Self-Raising flour

1 level tsp of bicarbonate of soda

2 level tsp of ground ginger

1 level tsp cinnamon

125g butter, chilled, cubed

100g soft brown sugar

100g golden syrup

100g dark chocolate

 

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/ Gas 4. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices. Rub in the butter, then stir in the sugar;

2. Next, heat the syrup in a small pan until just warm, then add to the flour mixture. Stir to make stiff dough;

3. Shape into small balls and put on 2 lined baking trays with a space between each. Press the balls down lightly with your hand and bake for 10 minutes. Cool on the tray for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack;

4. Finally, melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water - don't let the water touch the bowl. Drizzle the chocolate over the biscuits and leave to set.
