Ginger Snap


  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of golden syrup
  • ½ cup of butter
  • 3 ½ cups of flour
  • ½ teaspoon of bicarbonate soda
  • 2 tablespoons of ground ginger


Take 1 cup of syrup and boil it in a sauce pan. Then add butter in it, and stir till the butter dissolves. Sift the flour into a bowl and put ginger, soda and sugar in it. Now, pour the mixture of the butter and syrup in the dry ingredients, until the mixture resembles a dough. Keep kneading it till it becomes soft. Do not put water. Then roll this dough and cut into any shape you prefer. Place these cut out shapes on a greased tray and place into a moderately hot oven. Bake it for 10 to 15 minutes, until you do not see them swelling a little. When they have turned to a light brown colour, take them out of the oven and allow to cool. Store in air tight containers.
