Ginger Cookies

Original Recipe by Amy Beh

  • 55g butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 210g castor sugar
  • 2¾ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 165g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar

    Put butter, golden syrup and sugar in a mixing bowl. Beat until mixture turns pale. Sift in flour, bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar and add salt, ground ginger and nutmeg to mix. Stir until a soft dough is formed. Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.

    Make small cherry-sized balls of dough and place them on lightly-greased trays, well spaced.

    Bake in preheated oven at 180°C for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Leave the cookies on the tray for 5-6 minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool.
