125 g butter, softened
½ cup sugar
2 tsp golden syrup
¼ tsp baking soda, dissolved in 1 tsp hot water
½ tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger
1 cup plain flour
½ cup walnuts or macadamias, very finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 150°C. Line trays with baking paper.
- Cream butter and sugar. Beat in golden syrup, then mix in the baking soda, dry ingredients and nuts. Mix until dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.
- Roll small balls of dough and flatten onto lined trays with palm of hand. Bake 20 minutes until lightly golden and set, flattening again with a fork or your hand after 5 minutes if you want very thin biscuits. Cool 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Once fully cooled, store in an airtight container.
