Ginger Biscuits

Ginger Biscuits

Inspired by:
Australian Women’s Weekly Gingernuts

They were something simple and quick to take to a friend’s house.

Time Taken:
20 minutes preparation, 10 minutes baking=30 minutes

Number of Dirty Dishes:
Tray, medium saucepan, wooden spoon, teaspoon, measuring cups, measuring spoons, fork

I used:
90g dairy free margarine
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup golden syrup
1 1/3 cups gluten free flour
¾ tsp bicarb soda
1 tbs ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp allspice

What I did:
Line biscuit tray and preheat oven to 180C.
Melt margarine, sugar and golden syrup in a medium saucepan over low heat.
Once melted, remove from heat (turn off stove top) and add dry ingredients.
Mix until well combined.
Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes.
Roll teaspoons of mixture into balls and place on tray 5cm apart.
Flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake 10 minutes.
Take out of oven and leave to cool (they will solidify more).
Eat and Enjoy.

Comments after eating Ginger Biscuits:
They were a new taste for my friends, who went back for more.
I don't have a good record for making pretty looking biscuits, but the taste makes up for it.
I was pleasantly surprised with how they turned out, although next time I will aim for more moisture.

What I would do different:
Perhaps add more sugar or golden syrup in the hope they would be more moist.
Practice making biscuits look pretty!
