Ginger Biscuits

Makes 15 large biscuits

Inexpensive / Quick & Easy / Store Cupboard Ingredients /

 

These cost hardly anything to make and are super quick and easy. If you keep a well stocked store cupboard then you should already have most of the ingredients to hand. Pomegranate molasses are available in most supermarkets now, but you could always substitute this for golden syrup.

 



The length of baking is to give a crunchy biscuit, but if you prefer yours more cookie-like & chewy then reduce baking by 5-10 minutes dependent on the size of your biscuits.

 

Ingredients

100g butter, unsalted

225g granulated sugar

260g plain white flour

4 tsp dried ground ginger

1 ½ tbsp pomegranate molasses

1 tsp baking soda

1 egg

 

Instructions

Pre-heat your oven to 180c / 160c (fan) / Gas Mark 4

 

  1. In a large saucepan or sauté pan, melt the butter on a low heat, adding the pomegranate molasses just before the butter is completely melted. Stir together to combine.
  2. Take off the heat completely, then add in your sugar and egg, whisking together and mixing until creamy & a little fluffy.
  3. Tip in your ginger, baking soda, and flour and mix well to form your biscuit dough.
  4. Once all the ingredients are combined, leave to one side until cool enough to handle.
  5. Line a couple of baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  6. By hand, make equal size balls out of the dough and press lightly onto the baking sheet. Allow space between each one as the dough will spread whilst cooking.
  7. Place in the oven for 20 minutes. Keep an eye on them every now and then after the 10 minute mark.
  8. Remove from the oven and use a spatula to transfer the biscuits from the trays onto a cooling rack. Store in an air-tight container once completely cooled.
