200g Self Raising Flour

1.5 tsp ground ginger

100g butter

100g caster sugar

2 tbsp golden syrup


MAKES 8-12 dependent on size

Pre-heat a fan oven to 180. Line 2 baking trays with paper.

Whisk the flour and ginger together so the ginger is evenly dispersed in the flour.

Cream the butter & sugar to light, then mix in the syrup.

Mix in the flour/ginger until soft with no bits of flour left.

Form balls & flatten slightly as you put them on the tray.

Bake for around 10 minutes, until golden brown, turning part way/swapping shelves so they brown evenly.

Cool for a few minutes in the tray, then put onto a cooling rack once firming up.
