Ginger Snap biscuits fill me with a strong feeling of Fall. There is something about their colors and flavors that brings me right back very time. I love paring these biscuits with a cinnamon tea with honey after a cold day at work, it always helps to relieve stress and put me in a more positive mood. These biscuits also freeze very well, so you can store them for up to a month in a sealed container and pull them out one-by-one for your afternoon tea. After thirty seconds in the microwave, you'd never be able to tell the difference!

  • 1 3/4 cups plain flour
  • 1/4 cup corn flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried, ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried, ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 teaspoon dried, ground cloves
  • 1/3 cup white sugar (+ extra for rolling biscuit dough balls)
  • 180 grams margarine
  • 4 tablespoon date syrup
  • 1 egg

In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to mix together plain flour, corn flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and sugar (not the extra sugar for rolling biscuit dough balls).
In a medium mixing bowl, use a handheld mixer on low speed for around a minute to combine the margarine and date syrup. Once thoroughly combined, add in the egg.
Add the margarine mixture to the flour mixture, using the handheld mixer to combine the two.
Cover bowl with cling wrap and place in the freezer for at least 40 minutes.
Preheat the oven the 180 degrees Celsius (355 degrees Fahrenheit) and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Remove the biscuit dough from the oven and roll it into ping pong-sized balls.
Place a small amount of sugar into a glass and fill a small bowl with water. Place the dough balls one-by-one in the sugar and roll them around until completely coated with sugar. Place the balls on the parchment paper leaving a 3 cm (1 inch) gap between them.
Use a regular drinking glass to flatten the biscuits, dipping the glass in water as needed to prevent the dough from sticking to the glass.
Place the biscuits in the oven and bake for 8 minutes or until beginning to brown. Let cool on tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
