Step 2

Stir the baking powder and ginger into the flour, then rub the butter and maple syrup into the flour with your finger tips, or pulse on and off in a food processer to combine into a crumbly texture, that will easily press together into a dough. Add a splash of water if needed to bring it together, but not too much.
