A and I spent an easy breezy afternoon walking and talking and baking.
I will miss you when you go back, A.
Here is the recipe for these cookies, as well as the ones in my masthead:
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Ingredients: 2 cups (300g) plain flour
1 tsp bicarb of soda
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup (80g) brown sugar
1/3 cup (125g) golden syrup
5cm biscuit cutter (cookie cutter)
Method: Sift flour, soda and ginger into a bowl. Place butter, sugar and golden syrup into a saucepan. Cook over low heat, until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Cool. Pour the syrup into the flour mixture, and combine. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead until smooth. Cover with plastic and chill for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface until 5mm thick. Cut out shapes and carefully place onto trays. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool biscuits on trays for 5 minutes, then onto a wire rack to cool completely.
