- 50g honey
- 300g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 125g soft butter
- 125g sugar (soft brown is best)
- 1 egg, beaten
- Pre-heat the oven to 160C (not any hotter!)
- Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper
- Sift flour, baking powder & ginger into a bowl
- Add the butter & rub in
- Stir in the sugar, then egg, then honey
- Mix to a sticky dough, adding water if necessary. It needs to be firm enough to roll out, but also soft enough that it can be re-rolled a few times
- Roll out to about 6mm thick and cut into shapes
- Put the biscuits on the tray & cook for 10-15mins. Check on them to see how they’re doing. They need to feel “set” but not hard as they’ll harden up as the cool. Don’t overcook them – they won’t hurt if they’re very slightly underdone.
DD1 really enjoyed helping me make these & the dough is good for re-rolling again & again. I had the oven on too hot to begin with, so the first batch got a little over-cooked in just 10 mins. The second batch needed the full 15 mins & were a bit softer & chewier. Most importantly, they were very tasty.
