Serves: 40
Ingredients …
  • 1 cup butter
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ½ cup golden syrup
  • 3 cups plain flour, sifted
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ tablespoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
Method …
  1. Preheat oven to 180C (fan-forced) and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and golden syrup and stir gently over a low heat until butter is just melted. Don’t allow the mixture to boil.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in sifted flour, bicarb soda, cinnamon, ginger and allspice. Mix to combine and allow mixture to cool slightly.
  4. Measure approximately 2 teaspoons of mixture, roll into a ball and place on baking trays approximately 3 cms apart to allow room for spreading. Flatten each ball slightly with a fork to make a flat biscuit shape and creating a “line” pattern in the top of each biscuit.
  5. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Remove from oven, allow to stand on trays for a couple of minutes and transfer biscuits to a wire rack to cool completely. This recipe will make approximately 40 biscuits which are suitable to freeze.
