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!
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min.
  • Makes
    3 dozen


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


  • 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. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  • Bake at 325° for 12-15 minutes. Cookies will flatten and "crackle" when done.

    Is this recipe right? How is the batter supposed to look? I am not sure that this is correct. Please let me know. They do taste good though.
