Dried ginger has very nice and tangy flavor. And when it comes to cookies, ginger imparts the most exotic flavor to cookies. Throw in cinnamon and you have the most heavenly flavored cookies.
I adapted this recipe from the " The Big Book of Beautiful Biscuits" from "Women's Weekly". I got this book recently and am in love with it ever since.
2 cups plain flour
1 cup castor sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
125 gm butter
1 small egg
1 tsp honey
Sift flour and baking soda in a bowl. Add sugar cinnamon, salt and ginger. Rub in butter until mixture has a very fine crumb consistency. Beat eggs with honey and add to dry ingredients. Work into a firm dough with hand.
Roll into small balls. Place balls on lightly greased baking sheet about 5 cm apart (these cookies expand so make sure they are at least 5 cm apart). Bake at 160 C for about 15 minutes. Loosed biscuits and cool on tray. This recipe yields about 40 cookies.
