Crisp Ginger Biscuits



30 piece(s)

Crisp Ginger Biscuits

  • 300 g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 220 g brown sugar
  • 125 g Butter, chopped
  • 60 g Boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup, (~40g)

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 170-180 degrees C and line 3 baking trays with paper
  2. Place flour, bicarbonate of soda, ground ginger and mixed spice in TM bowl, and mix 5 seconds speed 5
  3. Add in brown sugar and mix another 5 seconds speed 5. Scrape down sides of bowl
  4. Add chopped butter into bowl and crumb into mixture by mixing on turbo for 1 second bursts three times
  5. With measuring cup in place in the lid of the bowl, measure boiling water into cup and add golden syrup to the water - this should take the liquid almost to the top of the mixing cup. Give a small stir to combine slightly.
  6. Keep lid closed and set to knead for 2 minutes. Pour measuring cup contents into the bowl with the blades moving. The resulting dough is quite soft - that is normal
  7. Roll ~2 tspns of mixture into balls and place on baking tray leaving at least 5 cm between each biscuit for spreading. I usually place no more than 12 on a single tray as they always spread more than you expect. Press each ball down slightly to flatten
  8. Bake 15 minutes, swapping trays around halfway through cooking. Cool for 10 minutes on trays before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Firm up a lot more on cooling completely

    Not ginger-y enough for us. Dough is oily enough that it doesn't stick to your hands while rolling, which is awesome.
