These really are easy with five ingredients and one saucepan. Jack loves measuring out all the ingredients and of course eating the result!
For 12 biscuits, you will need:
- 60g margarine
- 60g golden caster sugar
- 60g golden syrup
- 120g self-raising flour
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a baking tray.
Put the margarine, sugar and syrup in a saucepan and gently heat until everything has melted. Let this cool a bit. Then add straight into the pan the flour and ginger, mixing it well so you get a decent dough.
Butter your hands a little, or flour them, and divide up your dough into 12 balls of roughly the same size. You’re looking for golf ball size, give or take. Roll each ball and place it on the baking tray, flattening them a little with a spoon. Ensure you leave enough space for the biscuits to grow in size.
Put the baking tray into the oven for about 10-12 minutes or until the biscuits are golden. Remove from the oven, leave to cool on the tray for a bit and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
You can make these vegan, by using Vitalite spread instead of margarine and adding 20g extra flour.
