here's another of the recipes I grew up on with mum baking in the kitchen ... from her handwritten recipe book
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/2 cup self raising flour
1 heaped teaspoon ground ginger
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add golden syrup and egg and mix well. Mix together sifted self raising flour and ground ginger. Add this flour ginger mix to the butter sugar syrup and egg mix. Add a little lemon juice for flavour (but not enough to make the mixture runny).
Spoon mixture onto greased baking trays a teaspoon at a time. Cook in a slow oven.
