There is nothing much more delightful than a crisp, gingery brandy snap filled with whipped cream. Cook one or two first, to establish the exact baking time required for a pliable wafer.

1.Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Grease oven trays.
2.Stir butter, sugar, syrup and ginger in medium saucepan over low heat until smooth. Remove from heat; stir in sifted flour and juice.
3.Drop rounded teaspoons of mixture about 5cm (2-inches) apart onto trays. Using a wet, thin metal spatula, spread mixture into 8cm (3-inch) rounds. Bake snaps about 8 minutes or until bubbling and golden brown.
4.Slide a thin metal spatula under each snap; quickly shape each one into a cone. Place snaps on a wire rack to cool. Fill with whipped cream just before serving. The snaps are best made on the day of serving.

It is fine just to use 1 x 300ml carton of cream for this recipe. Brandy is not an ingredient in brandy snaps today, but possibly was included many years ago. If you like, add a little icing sugar and a tablespoon of brandy to the whipped cream.
