DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the butter, sugar, syrup, lemon juice and brandy gently together in a saucepan until the brandy melts and the butter melts and the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat, mix in the flour and ginger and leave to cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 190ºC, line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper and place 6 teaspoons of the mixture, placed well apert on each. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. To ensure enough time to roll the brandy snaps, put one tray into the oven 5 minutes before the other.
  • Remove the brandy snaps from the oven and cool on the baking tray for a few seconds, then lift the biscuits off with a palette knife and roll around wooden spoon handles. If they become too hard to roll, pop them back in the oven for a few seconds. When firm, remove from the spoon handles and cool on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  • To fill the brandy snaps, spoon the cream into a piping bag fitted with a small star nozzle and pipe into each end of the biscuits.
  • Serve as soon as they are filled.
