  • 0.5 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 0.5 tsp Black Pepper crushed
  • 75 g Butter
  • 0.5 tsp Cinnamon

  • 100 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 225 g Plain Flour

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Whisk the sugar and butter together in a mixer over a high speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Whisk together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices in another bowl to remove any lumps.
  4. Mix the egg, treacle and ginger together in a small bowl.
  5. Gradually add the flour to the butter, alternating with the egg, until fully incorporated.
  6. Divide into 10 pieces and press each one into the sugar to coat. Roll into balls and arrange on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Nope don’t press them down.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes until golden. They will be a little soft and squidgy so give them a minute to cool before grabbing one.
