My first phopping

Wordless Wednesday.

Yarn swap & very appropriate card from Nancyflowers in aid of MSF.


The weather is miserable. It's perfect fibre crafting weather. It's also good baking weather so here is the Obligatory October Baking Blog post.

I'm going to Loop's yarn swap for MSF tomorrow and have made some biscuits to take along. Of course they are gingernuts, my signature biscuit. Here's my recipe, adapted from The Cranks Recipe Book.



60g Margarine or butter
175g Plain flour
60g brown sugar
100g Golden syrup
2tsp baking powder
1tsp Bicarbonate of soda
2tsp Ground ginger

For the icing
Icing sugar
Ginger cordial

Rub the butter and flour and baking powder together until you have a crumbly mixture. Stir in the sugar. Warm the golden syrup and add the bicarbonate of soda and ground ginger. Add the ginger golden syrup mixture to the flour and butter mix. Knead them together to form a dough. Roll small ball of dough, flatten them slightly and place them on a greased baking sheet leaving a good amount of space between them as the dough will spread.
