Gingernuts

Good old favourite biscuit recipe, great for staving off morning sickness.  I usually make a double batch and take some along to my regular coffee morning and keep some in the biscuit tin at home. They are very tasty dunked in hot drinks, not that I'm admitting to anything.

125g softened butter

50g brown sugar

3 Tblsp golden syrup

250g flour

1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 1 Tblsp boiling water

2 tsps ground ginger

1 Tblsp boiling water

Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a couple of baking trays with non-stick baking paper. 

Cream the softened butter, brown sugar and golden syrup together until light and fluffy.  Add the baking soda dissolved in boiling water followed by all the sifted dry ingredients.  Mix well to combine.

Roll spoonfulls into small balls and place evenly spaced on the baking trays. Allow a little room for the bscuits to spread.  Press down each one lightly with a floured fork.

Bake on greased trays for about 20 minutes.
