Ginger Cookies

Ginger cookies are known for their delicious and spicy flavor. The combination of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves gives them a warm and cozy taste that many people enjoy.


375g Self-rising flour

1 teaspoon Baking powder

3 teaspoon Ground ginger

1 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon Ground cardamom

180g Unsalted butter

200g Light brown sugar

60ml Maple syrup

1 Egg, whisked

Extra brown sugar to roll cookies in


Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line one or two oven trays with baking paper.

Combine the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom in a mixing bowl.

Combine the butter, sugar, and maple syrup in a small saucepan. Over low heat and while stirring, cook for 2 minutes until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth. Let it cool for 5-8 minutes.

Add the flour to the mixture with the egg and stir until well combined.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2 hours till firm.

Place some brown sugar on a large plate. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and roll in the sugar to coat. I like 50g balls, that's more or less a large teaspoon full.

Place on lined trays and press with a fork to flatten.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown, remove and cool.
