Recipe of the Month

Ee bah gum..
Parkin Biscuits
What you need …
110g/4oz butter
110g/4oz soft brown sugar
50g/2 oz black treacle
110g/4 oz golden syrup
225g/8oz plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
110g/4oz medium oatmeal

3 tsps ground ginger
How to bake …
Melt the butter in a pan with the treacle, golden syrup and sugar. Mix together all the dry ingredients. Add the liquid from the pan to form a paste. Leave to chill for 30 minutes. Roll out and cut into rounds and place on a baking tray. Bake in a warm oven for about 8-10 minutes. (350F, Mark 4, 180 C). 
Meryl’s tip :  The secret is in the texture of the paste which should be sticky and moist so don’t let the melting treacle, butter and sugar boil. Just like Bonfire Night Yorkshire Parkin, these biscuits get better i.e. stickier, if you leave it a day or two in an airtight tin or container. We can only wait until they cool out of the oven!
