Ginger Cookies (ginger Nuts)

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Bokenpop aka Madele

These crisp, dome shaped cookies have been a favourite in my home for years. They were first made as a dad-pleaser and have since become husband-and-son-pleasers, too! This recipe can be halved with success.

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:-)
