    JustJanS's Note:

    An old fashioned Australian favourite. My friend Liz is begged to bring these wherever she goes, and has given me a couple of lessons in making them. She is particular about getting the measaurements exact, so please note an Austrlain tablespoon contains 4 teaspoons. Heat your spoon in boiling water and the golden syrup will slide off easily. This recipe is from Australian Women's Weekly Beautiful Book of Biscuits (cookies).

      Place the syrup, butter and brown sugar into a saucepan and stir over low heat until the butter has melted.

      Remove from the heat and add the sifted flour and ginger; mix well.
    3. 3
      Drop teaspoonfuls of mixture onto lightly greased trays; three brandy snaps only to a tray to allow for spreading (which they will).
    4. 4
      To make life easy, only bake 1 tray at a time; bake for 5 minutes, remove from oven, allow to sit on tray a further minute.
    5. 5
      Have ready 3 wooden spoons.
    6. 6
      Using a spatual or knife, lift brandy snaps from tray.
    7. 7
      Working quickly, roll immediately around the handle of a wooden spoon; allow to firm and cool on the spoon handle.
    8. 8
      Repeat on cold trays with remaining mixture.
    9. 9
      Pipe whipped cream into each end of the brady snap to serve, but this must be done just before serving or they will go soft.
    10. 10
      Alternatively, you can shape the warm biscuit (cookie) over a glass and fill it with fruit, mousse or ice cream etc.

      I had some difficulty getting these off the baking trays... I didn't bother to try and roll them up, rather I folded them into basket shapes while they were warm and set them into a muffin pan to harden. Later.. they were filled with iceream and strawberries.. yum ! The taste is great, you just *have* to go nibble the broken bits even when you are full to bursting, but I have yet to master getting these off the pan successfully; either they are still a fraction too hot and they crinkle up on themselves , or they are too hard and they stick like glue to the trays coming off only in chips (very tasty chips though, I must add). Nothing wrong with this recipe other than my lack of expertise... the ginger snaps that made it into basket form looked impressive. These are wonderfully yummy, please see my rating system for an excellent 4 stars ! Thanks for a great recipe Jan !!!

      i love these and use them to make my mystery dessert which is hot and cold, and crunchy and smooth - a brandy snap basket filled with a scoop of vanilla and and a scoop of chocolate ice cream topped with hot chocolate fudge sauce!
