Dinner With The Omnivore

Must … resist ….. biscuits! Aaaaagh!!

Posted on: May 4, 2010

Having spring-cleaned the house of savoury snacks, cheese, leftover Twixes and bags of Haribo, then resisted the temptation to stock up on chocolate Breton butter biscuits in Casino, we find ourselves waylaid by recipe books. If we spend the interseason eating as though we were skiing every day we are going to see a grave waistline malfunction, but I can hardly clear the cupboards of baking basics without seriously cramping my culinary style. These are so easy that JC can whip them up in ten minutes while standing on one leg – which is all he’s currently equipped with.

World’s easiest ginger nuts

You will need: 4 oz butter; 8 oz flour; 1 tsp bicarb; 4 oz sugar; 1 (generous) tsp ginger; 1 tblsp Golden Syrup.

Melt the butter, sugar and Golden Syrup in a pan, then add all the dry ingredients. Roll into balls, place on a baking sheet and squah into flat biscuits. Bake at 180°C for about eight to 10 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like your biscuits.

I need to get my hands on some Golden Syrup! It’s not that common in the U.S., but I’d love to make some Anzac biscuits and ginger nuts. Yum yum!

Hmm … maybe corn syrup would suffice? (Not sure what that stuff is, to be honest, but I often see it listed in US recipes.)
