Ginger Sugar Cookies...


Cream:  
150 grams soft butter 
and 1/2 cup each of white caster sugar and brown sugar.
When light and fluffy add 1 egg,
 1/4 cup golden syrup,
 mix well.
Sift into this:
2 1/2 cups plain flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 
1 teaspoon ground cloves 
and 2  teaspoons of ground ginger.
(add another teaspoon if you prefer a stronger hit of ginger)
1 teaspoon baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
Mix into a dough.
Form small balls.
 Boy this cookie dough is sooooo scrumptious....
I'm surprised there was any left to bake!  :)
                                   Roll the balls into white caster sugar. 
                                         And press down with a fork.
                                          Bake at 350 degrees Celsius 
                                          for 10-12 minutes until golden.
