Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a baking tray with parchment.
Cream the butter and sugar. They should be beaten together till they resemble the consistency of whipped cream.
Beat in the egg yolk and syrup.
Combine the ginger and the flour. Sieve into the butter mixture and fold together gently.
Spoon walnut sized balls onto the prepared tray, then flatten each slightly with the back of a fork.
Bake the biscuits in the oven for about 12-17 minutes or until they are golden brown.
You can use caster sugar instead of demerara or brown.
I used gluten free s/r flour for this, and I added in golden syrup and chocolate drops plus a little vanilla essence. Was a perfect turn out, slightly flatter than I would have liked, but these don't last long enough to look 'pretty'. Chewy and tasted a bit like salted caramel. Kids did the 5star verdict. Superb. - 24 Nov 2016
