Gingernuts Cookies

I have a few cookies recipes which I've bookmarked using Ginger thinking to be baked during Christmas time but every year, I always miss out baking those bookmarked recipes.  

When Hui of Waltzing Butterflies posted her Gingernut cookies recently, and looking at the simple ingredients and steps to prepare, and in no time wasted, I made mine today.

makes 16 cookies

105g flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp ground ginger
40g brown sugar
50g unsalted butter, cold, diced
1 tbsp + 2 tsp golden syrup

Preheat oven to 180C.

Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and ground ginger together in a mixing bowl. Add in the brown sugar till combined.

Mix in the diced butter into the dry ingredients till crumbly.

Add in the golden syrup into the mixture and mix till become stiff paste.  

Divide into 16 pcs and roll into balls  Place them onto the baking sheet and flatten the balls slightly.

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or till cookies turn golden brown and cracked.

Original recipe from Delia Online
