 Ginger Biscuits
My English cousin in Yorkshire sent me this old-fashioned recipe for buttery ginger cookies (or "biscuits" if you're British). You'll love the taste!
18 ServingsPrep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min.

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix or self-rising flour

  • 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine baking mix or flour, sugar, ginger, soda and salt.
  • Using hands, rub egg into mixture.
  • In a saucepan, warm syrup and butter; stir into batter. Let stand for
  • 3-4 minutes, then knead. Roll heaping teaspoonfuls into small balls.
