Ginger Shortbread
50 mins (prep 10, cooking 40)
7 ingredients
10-15 servings
This is a very tasty cookie with a bit of a kick from ginger. These go very well with tea. Please only use real butter - shortbread does not lend itself to any substitutions. My dear friend,Michelle,used to serve these and shared the recipe with me. The recipe is adapted from "Traditional Scottish Cookery" by Theodora Fitzgibbon. The amount of cookies you get will very depending upon how small you cut them. I like to use a shortbread mold. NOTE: If you can't find golden syrup (also known as Cane Syrup), you may subsitute corn syrup or honey - or mix honey & corn syrup together.
