Ginger Pear & Walnut

These are a little bit shortbready, I use home dehydrated pears I guess you could use any dried fruit:

110g Self raising Flour
50g Butter (unsalted if poss)
40g Dried Pears chopped
30g Sugar
1 1/2 tbsp Golden Syrup
1 heaped tsp ground ginger
1 tsp Baking Powder

Mix all ingredients (excl nuts & pears) to a paste, add nuts and fruit shape into a dough & refrigerate

Shape into biscuits however you choose, I just used a teaspoon and flattened them onto a baking tray.

Cook 12-15 mins @ 150Fan

MRs Famous Biscuits

5 oz plain wholemeal flour
5 oz butter
4 oz dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey (a less sweet tasting one is best)
4 1/2 oz porridge oats
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon milk

Either rub the butter into the flour, add all the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly, or

for an easier method, gently heat the butter in a pan, add the honey when it is nearly melted, then add the milk. Keep as cool as possible. Put all dry ingredients in a bowl, mix, add liquid and stir until all mixed thoroughly. Take about a dessert spoon of mixture at a time (it is quite sticky), roll into a ball, put on a baking tray and flatten slightly. Bake at gas mark 2 for about 30 mins until only slight give in top when touched. Cool on a wire rack. They are quite crisp, and keep well in a tin for several weeks.

Oatcakes
350g/12oz fine oatmeal
1tsp salt
150ml/5fl oz boiling water
40g/ 1.5 Oz soft margarine
Pinch bicarb

1. Dry ingredients in large bowl
2. Melt marg in water over low heat
3. Add to oats and mix to a dough
4. Turn out onto sprinkled oatmeal and knead until smooth
5.dust a rolling pin and roll out into two 10"/25cm rounds cut into 8 sections and place onto greased baking sheets.
6. Bake in a cool oven 150C/300F/gas mark 2 for an hour until crisp and cool on a wire rack.

I cut them into 2.5" rounds. They inadvertently had an extra 5 minutes last time and were nicely crisp!
The first batch I used Pura marg, the second I used vegan block marg and they tasted better and handled easier when making

I haven't written it in the book! 100g should be sufficient

makes 15

100gm soft flour
4gm baking powder
10gm ginger powder
30 gm soft brown sugar
30gm salted butter(or other dry hard shortening)

mix till breadcrumb texture

25gm crystallised ginger

chop and mix in

make a well in the mix

half a medium egg
20gm golden syrup
beat together until smooth

add to well

pull in until mixed.

press together
chill ( that bit matters )

gently knock up/roll into a slab as thick as 3 pound coins

cut 3 long and 5 wide

fan oven 170C
cold solid but not too solid rimless baking tray
baking parchment

15 mins
then

if you can see through the door watch until they look a bit overdone
no window , nose and maybe open the door
the then part varies

pale is cookie, dark is dunker in between keeps for a week in a box and is rather yummy

there is a spare 7 gm of dry flavouring missing from my recipe in this version so add a novelty treat of choice
