Ginger biscuits, Gifted Tableware and Happy Bunnies.

These are our fave ginger biccies in the world made by my middle 12 yr old girl.And the jaunty plate is one of a dinner service (complete with tureens...swoon...) gifted to my by Lynn a lovely colleague who was chucking em out can you believe it?

The recipe is one we have written in our all purpose scribble em down if they sound/look good book.

12 oz self raising flour
8 oz caster sugar
2tsp ground ginger
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz margarine (we use stork)
4oz golden syrup
1 egg

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Melt marg and syrup over medium heat in a saucepan
Make well in dry ingredients, pour in melted stuff.
Add beaten egg.
Bring it all together to a soft dough.
(If it's a bit sticky add a little more flour.)
Roll into smallish approx walnutish sized balls (or bigger if you like a huge biscuit)
Flatten slightly. They need plenty of room to spread out.
Place on baking paper on tray, we put 6 to a standard tray as these babies do grow.
190 degrees C.
10-15 mins depending on your oven. Watch em, they soon burn.
If you leave only 10 mins they should be a bit chewy in the middle, the longer you leave them the more biscuit like they are.
Makes 18-24 biscuits depending on size.
