Ginger Biscuits

21st Apr 2018

There's nothing more comforting than the smell of baking ginger biscuits. It reminds me of my grandparents and Scandinavian winters.


380g plain flour

1 Tbsp ground ginger*

1 tsp mixed spice*

1 tsp bicarb of soda

100g brown sugar (I use rapadura)

130g chilled chopped butter

130g syrup (I use rice malt syrup + a Tbsp molasses)

Pinch of salt

1 egg

Method (for Thermomix, or just use a food processor)

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees

2. Blitz all ingredients in Thermomix 12 seconds / speed 6

3. Mix for 50 seconds on dough mode

4. Roll dough into a ball and refrigerate for 30 mins

5. Roll out between baking sheets then cut into shapes or bake as a slab for 10 - 15 minutes

*I recently discovered an amazing spice shop in Newcastle called My Souk Drawer - all hand roasted and blended. You can replace the ginger/ mixed spice here with 2 Tbsp of Gingersnap Spice Mix . Soooo good.
