Ingredients:

340g/12oz plain flour
1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 level tsps ground ginger
100g/4oz butter
160g light brown sugar
4 tblsp golden syrup
1 large egg, beaten

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
Line the baking trays with grease proof paper.
Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl. Rub in butter with finger tips until it looks like bread crumbs. Stir in the sugar then the syrup and the beaten egg. Bring it all together to form a smooth pastry dough.
On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to be about 8mm thick. Using a 2” straight-sided round cutter, cut out biscuits until all the biscuit dough is used up. Place on baking trays ensuring enough room is left for slight expansion of the biscuit.
Chill on the baking trays for 20 minutes in fridge.
Cook until golden brown. Remove from tray with palette knife and place on a cooling rack.

This makes about 40 biscuits, and takes 10 minutes to prepare and 10-15 minutes to cook.

Lazy burger! The home-made ones won't contain so many chemicals/ preservatives though.

Everyone - and don't tell me they haven't. Apart from chilling them, the whole thing takes about 25 minutes.

People do as they feel's right for them, irrespective of whether it's good or bad. The only way to convert someone's by leading by example - either cooking something nutritious for them or going out for nice healthy meals.

You're so cheeky - about both of us!!

Well I'm sure that Mrs. B eats whatever she fancies, but if she lumps weight on because of it, that's the time to take a look at what's going down the hatch. I know - I've been there. : (
