Something completely different for the Christmas season.
You will need:
110g castor sugar
110g golden syrup
225g self-raising flour
2 teaspoons ginger powder
1 teaspoon sugared orange peel, chopped
1 litre vanilla ice-cream
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Grease an oven pan with butter or Spray and Cook and line with baking paper.
Heat the butter in a saucepan on low heat. Add the castor sugar and golden syrup.
Remove from the heat as soon as the castor sugar has been worked through thoroughly. Set aside to cool.
Add the self-raising flour, sugared orange peel and ginger powder. Stir well.
Roll out the cooled down dough ball on a surface strewn with flour. Shape small round cookies, approximately the size of a teaspoon.
Place the cookies in the oven pan. Leave enough space between the cookies to allow them to rise.
Bake the cookies for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Set aside to cool.
Spoon a tablespoon ice-cream on to every second cookie. Place the second cookie on top of the ice-cream.
Sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg on top of each ice-cream sandwich. Serve in a pudding bowl.
