Brilliant Bokkie! I LOVE Ginger Nuts, and these hit the spot today!! I halved the recipe, and got a baker's dozen out of the mixture, 13. I also popped a little Lyles black treacle in with the golden syrup. Made for my ingredient, ginger, in the Photo's Forum March topic, and very much enjoyed! FT:-)
