About this recipe: This is a great ginger biscuit recipe that I have made numerous times over the years, hence the ingredients are in ounces! They have a lovely subtle ginger flavour and a great texture. Leave them a few minutes longer in the oven if you like your biscuits crispy and crunchy. These do spread so give them some space when spooning them onto the trays.

Makes: 2 to 3 dozen biscuits

  • 225g (8 oz) self-raising flour
  • 110g (4 oz) caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 85g (3 oz) butter
  • 110g (4 oz) golden syrup
  • 1 egg, beaten
