Christmas baking is all about the fragrant spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. The warmth, aroma and seductive flavour of ginger means this spice is one of the most popular to get us into the Christmas mood. Grandma’s recipe for Oat Ginger Biscuits my favourite biscuit and it’s an easy treat to make.
What you need :
1 tbsp golden syrup
50g/2oz soft brown sugar
110g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
110g/4oz rolled oats
1 tsp ginger (or more to taste)
2 tbsps water
How to bake :
Pre heat the oven to 375F, Mark 5, 190C. Melt the butter with the golden syrup and sugar in a pan over a low heat. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, bicarbonate of soda, oats and ginger) and add to the melted mixture. Mix well and add the water. Form into a dough. Leave to chill for 30 minutes. Roll into rounds on a well-greased baking tray. Bake in a quick oven for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from the baking tray while warm.
Meryl says : These delicious biscuits make fantastic Christmas presents. Dip in melted chocolate, drizzle water icing or decorate with silver balls. Let your Christmas creative spirit run wild. For decorations, make a small hole with a skewer in the top of each biscuits prior to baking at the top of each biscuit.
