Method

Honey snap biscuits
  • 1
    Preheat the oven to moderate (180°C).
  • 2
    Combine butter, honey and sugar in a small saucepan; stir over a medium heat until the butter is melted. Remove from the heat, stir in vanilla.
  • 3
    Sift the flour and ginger into a bowl; stir in the butter mixture and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth.
  • 4
    Drop heaped teaspoons of mixture, about 8cm apart, onto greased oven trays, about six at a time. The biscuits will spread during cooking.

    Bake in a moderate oven for about 8 minutes or until golden brown. You can cook two trays at a time in a fan-forced oven. In a conventional oven, alternate the trays' positions halfway through cooking.
  • 6
    Stand biscuits on the trays for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool. These biscuits are delicious served with ice-cream or fruit desserts.
