The Easter goodies and hot cross buns are all finished, not wishing to go to the shops, what little treats can I make from the back of the cupboard?
Ginger Oaty Biscuits
150g butter, diced if cold
1 tbsp syrup (I substituted runny honey instead)
175g granulated sugar
125g self-raising flour(I used plain flour plus 5g baking powder)
100g porridge oats
2 tsp ground ginger
1. Preheat oven to 180c/160c fan/ Gas 4. Line a couple of large baking trays with baking paper.
2. Place the butter, syrup/honey, and sugar into a large saucepan. Heat gently until the sugar is dissolved and well combined
3. Remove from the heat and add the flour, oats and ginger. Stir until well incorporated, then tip onto a clean flat surface, flatten out and leave to cool for 10mins.
4. Scoop up teaspoonfuls of the mixture (which will be slightly crumbly and buttery) and roll into small balls. Place on the prepared baking trays, spaced well apart and lightly push down to flatten. Bake for 10mins until golden colour.
