I am on a Christmas baking, cooking and devouring this year. Seriously on a roll😛. Tried to make these ginger biscuits this time and they have been outstanding and perfect.
My son has really enjoyed with his friends and myself enjoyed too with tea. Infact I shared few with my friends too at our rendezvous in the garden area of my society. After all Christmas is to celebrate and to celebrate with your friends. It’s all about loving and sharing and celebrating 😍.
So here’s the recipe which yields 25 medium sized biscuits.
125 gms salted butter at room temperature
1/2 cup soft dark brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses or golden syrup or honey.. have used golden-syrup
2+1/2 cups APF or refined flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg powder
Some extra flour for dusting
Assorted edible sugar sprinklers
Take sugar and butter in a bowl. Whip till light and fluffy with hand mixer… for about 3 minutes at medium speed.Add golden syrup and eggs. Mix well.Add flour, baking powder, all the spices. Mix well but don’t knead. Just combine well using your hands.
Pat the dough and wrap with cling film. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours. The dough will become hard enough to roll or to make balls for cookies.
Preheat oven at 175° c for 10 minutes. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
By the time the OTG is getting preheated, divide the dough into 2 equals and keep back one in refrigerator.
From the first portion, make smooth balls and roll them in edible sugar sprinkles. Place them on lined sheet 1.5 “ apart. Press slightly on each ball.
Place the tray in oven and bake for 8-10 minutes at 175°C.
As you can see the browning edges, take the tray out and place it on wire rack. Cool it for a while and transfer them on wire racks again. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough.
