Gingernut Biscuits

Baking can be very therapeutic. I was feeling a little tired this evening, so I decided to bake these delicious gingernut biscuits.

100 g butter
100 g brown sugar
1 tbs honey
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp all spice
50g ground peanuts
150 g self raising flour

1. Melt butter, sugar and honey in a bowl on top of a boiling pot of water.
2. Sieve flour. Add ground ginger, all spice and peanuts.
3. Leave the butter mixture to cool for 5 mins before adding to the dry ingredients.
4. Shape the mixture into balls and then flatten with fork on baking tray.
5. Bake in moderate oven (160 degrees), middle shelf for 20 mins.
