Fiery Ginger Cookies

  • 150g Whitworths Crystalised Ginger, roughly chopped
  • 75g butter, softened
  • 150g light brown, soft sugar
  • 1 medium egg yolk
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 115g self raising flour

Ready… Steady… Bake…

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas Mark 4, then line two baking sheets with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and smooth then stir in the egg yolk.
  • Add the remaining ingredients then stir to form an even dough.
  • Divide equally into 10 balls then flatten slightly, place onto your lined baking sheet leaving plenty of room for them to spread in the oven.
  • Bake in your pre-heated ovent for 10-12 minutes (a longer cooking time will make them crispier, whilst a shorter time will leave them soft and chewy)
  • Allow to cool on the trays for at least 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container and enjoy!
