Recipe by HeatherFeather
READY IN: 50mins




  • Cream the 4 ozs butter with the sugar.
  • Combine flour, 1 tsp. ginger, and baking powder; add to the butter mixture.
  • Put into a greased shortbread pan (or a 7-8" round or square baking pan) and bake at 325 F (170 C) for about 40 minutes or until done.
  • While the shortbread is baking, prepare the icing: melt together the butter, ginger, and golden syrup in a saucepan over low heat until blended and smooth.
  • Pour the icing over the hot shortbread and let it cool a little.
  • When the icing has cooled a bit, decorate the top with pieces of candied ginger.
  • Cut shortbread into shapes (wedges or rectangles).
  • Cool completely before removing from pan.
  • *Note:You may leave out the candied ginger- some may find it too spicy, especially children.
