What a great gift idea for the Christmas season. You can keep your empty pasta sauce jars you have used throughout the year and put them to good use with these thoughtful and easy to make gifts.
All you will need is:
Mix the sugar with ginger, allspice and cinnamon in a bowl.
Once mixed, spoon into the jar and pack down tightly.
Add a layer of crystallised ginger on top.
Mix flour with baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and spoon on top of the ginger.
Put on the lid, decorate with ribbons and a cookie cutter.
Label with cooking instructions:
You will need to label this jar with cooking instructions so that the receiver knows how to cook these tasty cookies. Make sure you label with these instructions…
Mix 150g melted butter with 1 tbsp golden syrup and 1 egg yolk. Add to the dry ingredients, mix well, then knead to a dough. Chill for 15 mins then roll out. Cut into biscuits and bake at 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 8-10 mins. Cool on a wire rack.
