110g Self-raising flour
1 Slightly rounded teaspoon ground ginger
1 Level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
40g Zùsto
50g Block butter, at room temperature
50g (or 2 tablespoons) Golden syrup


1.Sift the flour, ground ginger and bicarbonate of soda together into a mixing bowl, add the Zùsto, then lightly rub in the butter till crumbly.
2. All you do now is simply add the syrup and mix everything to a stiff paste. No liquid is needed because the syrup will be enough to bring the mixture to the right consistency.
3. Divide the mixture into quarters, as evenly sized as possible, then each quarter into four, and roll the pieces into little balls.
4. Place them on the baking sheet, leaving plenty of room between them because they spread out quite a bit. Then just flatten them slightly (to about 1.5cm) and bake near the centre of the oven at 190c fan for 10–15 minutes by which time they will have spread themselves out
5. Leave to cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to firm up.
