Ginger Biscuits by Alex

Alex of comes to the party with her own cookies. Here is her recipe:

It calls for ginger biscuits (cat shaped, perhaps?) The simplest recipe:
Proper way:
110g margarine ( plus some extra for greasing), 110g caster sugar, 110g golden syrup, 225g self-raising flour, 2 tsp ground ginger and a pinch of salt and white pepper.
Method: melt the margarine (or vegan butter-if using nut butter the taste will be different, so don’t use anything overpowering), add sugar and golden syrup. When it’s cooled down, add the dry ingredients. Roll out, cut out the cat shape (if difficult to handle, put in the fridge for half an hour), place on a greased tray. Bake for 10-12 mins in 180C (fan)
My way:
Right, I don’t follow recipes, so I normally do it like that: 1 part of the first 3 ingredients, and 2 parts of flour (any extras: no more than 3 tsp as it’ll change the consistency). Bake till it’s baked🙂
Tastes even better with rhubarb custard🙂

Thank you, dear Alex, and welcome to the party!
