Gingernuts Cookies 姜饼

I have baked these gingernut cookies twice for this Christmas. These cookies are simple to make even without a mixer, so if you are running out of time, these cookies will be your best option. 
These are really crunchy with a strong ginger flavour, just suit our taste. 
Gingernuts Cookies 姜饼
Makes : 16 cookies
105g flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp ground ginger (I added 2 tsp)
40g brown sugar
50g unsalted butter, cold, diced
1 tbsp + 2 tsp golden syrup
  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and ground ginger together in a mixing bowl. Add in the brown sugar till combined.
  • Mix in the diced butter into the dry ingredients till crumbly by hand.
  • Add in the golden syrup into the mxture and mix till become stiff paste.  
  • Divide into 16 pcs and roll into balls  Place them onto the baking sheet and flatten the balls slightly.
  • Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or till cookies turn golden brown and cracked.
