How to make ginger cake cookies

Place the flour, bicarb, ground ginger and soft brown sugar into a bowl and mix well.

Place the margarine into the flour mixture and rub the margarine into the flour until you get a rough bread crumb texture.

Take a litte pan and gently warm up the syrup.

You want the syrup to warm up and turn more watery and loose, do NOT boil your syrup.

This will only take a minute.

Pour the golden syrup into the crumbly ginger cake mixture, stir well until you get a very thick cake batter.

You should be able to make small balls out of your ginger cake mixture, it will feel a little sticky, the balls don't have to be a perfect shape.

Spread out the balls onto a greased and floured baking tray, the ginger cake balls should be approx 2 inches in size.

Place them into a pre-heated oven at 180C for 17 minutes only.

The cookies should be golden brown and puffed up.

Leave them for a minute then take the cookies straight off the trays.

When the ginger cookies have cooled down mix some powdered sugar with a few drops of vanilla essence and a little cold water.

You want a drizzling consistancy but not too thin.

Take a blunt knife and drizzle the icing from side to side of your plate of ginger cakes.

For best results eat when cooled and icing has dried a little.
