Hello, Elevenses Time people!

Hi there, I hope you're enjoying being part of Elevenses Time. To conform horribly to gender stereotypes, my first blog here is going to be to give you a biscuit recipe - can't help it! They happen to be fab - especially with a cup of tea.

So here goes:

Granny's Ginger Biscuits

1 lb self-raising flour
1/2 lb marge or butter
1/2 lb brown or white sugar
6 teaspoon ground ginger
1 egg
1 tabspoon golden syrup
Oven 200-225°C (Adjust for fan oven)

1. Either:
Put everything in mixer and blend till well-mixed

Rub fat into flour; add dry ingredients.
Beat egg and add to golden syrup.
Add to the dry mixture and work into dough

2. Roll pieces the size of a walnut. Place on floured baking tray and press down gently.

Cook for about 10 mins - until light golden brown.

Delicious straight from the oven; even tastier the next day if they last that long!!


[NB Sorry only imperial measurements and no gas oven temp - it is home recipe, and I haven't done the conversion]
