Diet.Chef's picture
  Plain flour 4 Ounce (100 Gram)
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Soda bicarbonate 1 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Butter/Margarine 2 Ounce (50 Gram)
  Caster sugar 2 Ounce (50 Gram)
  Golden syrup 3 Tablespoon

Lightly grease two baking trays.
Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and spices into a bowl.
Rub in the butter or margarine until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar, then warm the syrup in a saucepan and stir it into the dry ingredients to give a stiff dough.
Divide the mixture into 20 and form each piece into a ball.
Place the biscuits well apart on the prepared baking trays.
Bake in a moderately hot oven (200 C, 400 F, gas 6) for 8-10 minutes, or until the fairings are golden brown.
Allow the biscuits to cool on the trays for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
