Here’s how the recipe came out:
1/4 lb butter (1 stick)
1 1/4 C sugar
1 T golden syrup
2 C flour (The recipe called for a bit more so I rounded the second cup)
1 tsp baking soda
4 tsp ginger
It was pretty easy. The butter and sugar get creamed with egg.
Not having “golden syrup,” I mix 2 teaspoons of light corn syrup and 1 teaspoon of molasses.
The rest get blended together. The dough is then rolled into balls and put on a cookie sheet.
They baked at 350F for 25 minutes.
Out of the oven they were nice and soft. And within minutes, they’d hardened to a hearty crunch. Very nice with one of my remaining Elf Warmer Christmas Ales!
