Originally I started making real ginger cookies to make it on boat trips. As in, on a lake my tummy would be upset. Then I found watching cricket does the same…. Weird connection! So the natural ginger in these settles my gut down and allows me to go on a barge over to the islands, and watch that 6 get pelted over the fence!
250g butter, melted or very soft
200g brown sugar
2 cups plain wholemeal flour
1 tsp ground ginger
2 cm grated fresh ginger
Combine the butter and sugar. Then add the egg, flour and ginger, mixing all the ingredients together. Roll tablespoon portions of the mix in your hands and place on a lined baking tray, about 3 cm apart. Mark with the back of a fork (as traditionally done for ginger cookies)! Bake in 180 degree Celsius oven for about 15 minutes. Try not to eat them all in one go! Have a fabulous time making them!
