Ginger Biscuits: My Autumn Faves!

Being a mummy and a blogger and a human being I love a big mug of coffee… in fact at times I do wonder if it’s what is keeping me awake and functioning and nothing goes better with a cup of coffee in the morning than a biscuit or three…five…two I mean two. I love a whole host of biscuits from custard creams to malted milks with the cow on them that I always used to get from my nanny. However, my mum adores anything with ginger in and so recently, I thought I’d knock together some ginger biscuits which are perfect for Autumn as they seem to warm you from the inside but are not fiery hot like some can be…

  • 220g caster sugar
  • 220g  golden syrup
  • 450g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 6 tsp ground ginger

    I love a good biscuit or ten too! I haven’t made ginger biscuits for ages and these are perfect for those chilly autumn mornings settling in. Love all your pictures – they make me want to cosy up!

  7. These sound good and also quite easy. I like the way you’ve pointed out that you need to cool them otherwise you might think they need more flour. I’d be the one frantically adding more flour! #foodiefriday
