- 350g plain flour
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp bicarb soda
- 100g butter, cut into small chunks
- 175g soft brown sugar
- 1 medium egg
- 4 tbs golden syrup
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C, 375 degrees F or gas mark 5.
Sift the flour, ginger and bicarb soda into a large bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumb, then stir in the sugar.
Beat the egg and syrup together in a small bowl, then stir into the flour and mix well until it forms a soft dough.
Knead the dough on a floured board, roll out to 5mm thickness, and cut out shapes.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
