Brandy Snaps

Another fun snack from the website of Martha Stewart.

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter 
  • 1/3 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 cup Lyle’s Golden Syrup
Here's the directions.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, combine flour and ginger with a whisk. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar and golden syrup; cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until sugar is dissolved.

Mixing till dissolve

Remove from heat; stir in flour mixture.

Adding the flour mixture

Using a 2/3-ounce ice cream scoop, drop three level scoops of batter onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until flat and golden brown, about 10 minutes, rotating halfway through.

Remove from oven and let cookies cool just slightly until firm, about 2 minutes; place each cookie over an inverted drinking glass or wrap around the handle of a whisk, using your hands to press and gently shape. Let set 30 seconds. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat process with remaining batter. If cookies get too cool to shape, return them to oven for a few seconds until softened.

Wrapped around a wooden spoon handle

Cookies can be stored in a single layer in airtight containers at room temperature up to 2 days.

These are very tasty even though they contain no brandy!
