Ginger & Cardamom Biscuits


30 minutes

A wonderful twist on ginger biscuits, with a little extra spice. The addition of stem ginger in this recipe creates pockets of sugary heat that pop in the mouth and warm you through. Absolutely perfect with a cup of chai tea.

Here’s how you do it

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  2. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, the spices, sugar and salt into a large bowl.
  3. Rinse the stem ginger of any syrup. Dice and add to the flour mix.
  4. Melt the butter and golden syrup over a medium-low heat, then add to the flour mix and bring it together into a dough.
  5. Turn out onto a floured work surface and shape into a sausage shape. Cut into 12 equal pieces. Use your hands to roll each piece into a ball, then flatten gently and place onto your prepared baking trays.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, then leave to cool.
