These biscuits are the perfect combination of chewy and crunchy, and make a fun treat for everyone young and old. It is one of my personal favourite recipes and I am baking them today.
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup golden syrup
4 cups plain (all purpose) flour
4 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground mixed spice
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup raw sugar
Mix the dry ingredients of flour, spices, baking soda, salt and ginger together in a bowl and set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar.
Add the syrup and eggs.
Mix with a beater until smooth. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
Roll into balls, press flat then roll in raw sugar before placing on a tray, 1 inch apart.
Bake in a moderate oven for 8-12 minutes until golden brown.
Remove from oven and cool on wire racks. The finished product is deliciously chewy biscuits on the inside with crisp crunchy outsides.
