Method

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 180°C fan / 160°C fan/ gas mark 4. Grease and line two baking trays.

Why not display on an Easter party table, or make a hole in the top of the biscuit before baking and hang the biscuits with ribbon around the house for decorations. They can be cut into Easter shapes or any other shape you like for a different celebration.

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.

Step 3

Pop the dough in the fridge to rest for at least 30 minutes. Once ready flour a clean work surface and gently knead the dough, just to bring it together. Roll out to a 3mm thickness and cut out shapes using an Easter cookie cutter.
