Method

  1. Heat oven to 170C/150C fan/gas 3-4. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment. Melt butter, sugar and syrup in a pan, stirring until the sugar melts. Take off the heat. Sieve the flour, bicarb and ground ginger into a bowl, pour in the wet ingredients and add the stem ginger. Stir to make a stiff dough.
  2. Roll the warm dough out on a surface dusted with flour until about ½cm thick. Stamp out biscuits using a cutter, lift onto the baking trays and cook for 10 mins or until golden. Cool completely, then lift off parchment. These will keep for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
  3. Pack the biscuits in an airtight box, bag or jar, then put in a gift box with the cups and coffee and tie with a ribbon.

Did not like this recipe, the mixture came out very crumbly and wouldn't come together, I even put 2 egg yolks in to help bind it, but that didn't work at all. I then put the crumbly dough in the fridge for an hour (as that's what I do with other biscuit recipes) but still no joy, so added a few drops of milk then rolled into small balls and flatten on the baking tray, I wasn't going to give up! However having baked them and then letting them cool down, I was very disappointed, all the effort and ingredients wasted as I had to throw them in the bin as they were not very nice! Will be taking this recipe out of my binder!

Had to ladle the mixture into spoonsfuls to bake.

Delicious biscuits, really well received and easy to make. I half dipped some biscuits in dark chocolate, yum!
