Ahhh so close to Christmas now, who's excited?!

So for today's post, it's a new addition to my blog, a food related post! Since I was young, I've always been involved with cooking in my house, whether it was helping to prepare dinner or making it myself, I've always enjoyed cooking! So I wanted to share with you all a recipe for some yummy biscuits I made earlier this week!

So let's get started!

You will need...
275g of Plain Flour
1 large table spoon of Ground Ginger
1 teaspoon of Baking Powder
3/4 of teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 of teaspoon Salt
125g of Butter, softened
200g of Caster Sugar
1 medium Egg
1 tablespoon of Water
4 tablespoons of Golden Syrup
2 tablespoons of Caster Sugar
Icing Sugar

Step 1 - Preheat your oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Sift together the flour, ginger, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt, in a large mixing bowl. 

Step 2 - Add the butter into a small bowl and soften in the microwave for 20/30 seconds.

Step 3 - Add the egg, golden syrup and water into the dry ingredients.

Step 4 - Mix together and add the softened butter to the mixture.

Step 5 - Combine all the ingredients until you get a solid mixture. If it is a little too wet, just add some extra plain flour.

Step 6 - Roll the biscuit mixture into small balls, roll in some caster sugar, and place on a lined baking tray.

Step 7 - Place into the oven and cook for 10 - 12 minutes.

Step 8 - Whilst your biscuits are cooking, combine some Icing Sugar and Water into a paste for the glaze.

Step 9 - After the biscuits are cooked, transfer them to a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.

Step 10 - Complete the biscuits by drizzling over the iced glaze and enjoy with a lovely cup of tea!

If you cant finish all these tasty biscuits in one sitting, place them in a biscuit tin or tupperware box, and keep tightly seeled to keep fresh!
