Ginger Spice Cookies (For Dunking)

Ginger Spice Cookies

Is it sweet or is it savoury?

Shortest, quickest recipe ever! No, I have not forgotten about cooking/baking Wednesdays 😉 I’m just keeping up the suspense. Yesterday, I made these cute, crispy biscuits. Bikkies with bite – for the sophisticated palette. They’re great for an in promptu tea party and they are easy enough to whip up as an after thought.

As lots of people love baking you can even get your guests involved without creating too much boredom (proof is in the pudding as the chilli flakes were Denis’ idea 🙂 ). Thus:

You will need:

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup light brown packed sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown packed sugar
  • 1 cup golden syrup
  • 2 1/2 cups self raising flower
  • 1 heaped tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes

Takes about 10 minutes to prep and 10 minutes to bake. Not time, no worries. Excellent for a last minute bring-something.

How to: Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add the golden syrup.

Add the ginger and cinnamon to two cups of self raising flour. One cup at a time, add this to the wet ingredients.

Tray it. Oven it. Bake it for five ish minutes or until golden.

Leave to cool then eat. They will be very soft coming out of the oven so it is important to give them the time they need to cool down and set in shape.

    • Hey! Thanks for stopping by! Yes, honey is a perfect substitute for golden syrup. The syrup is a pale treacle (basically a bi product of the sugar refinery process. People who don’t eat honey often use it as a substitute, so I’m sure it will be fine going the other way. 🙂
