These delicious cookies are the perfect Christmas treat and are so easy to make. The combination of brown sugar, golden syrup and butter combined with ginger and cinnamon creates a beautiful festive aroma while they are baking in the oven. They also make great (and cheap!) gifts, tied up in a pretty satin ribbon. Enjoy!
120g of softened butter
2 x tablespoons of golden syrup
40 grams of brown sugar
40 grams of white sugar
3/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
3/4 cup of plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of bi-carb soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Heat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Combine golden syrup, sugar and butter and mix until light and creamy. Sift in flour, salt, bi-carb, ginger and cinnamon and combine until a dough forms.
Roll about 20 small balls and place on a baking tray lined with a sheet of baking paper, leaving enough distance between them for the cookies to spread.
Bake in oven for about 12 minutes until the cookies are lightly golden.
