1 tblsp finely grated fresh ginger

Finely grated peel of one organic, or at least unwaxed, orange

350 g wheat flour

1,5 tsp baking powder

4 tsp dried ginger powder (more if you are a ginger nut yourself, less if not so much)

1 egg, whisked


Heat butter, sugar and syrup, stirring, till the butter has melted.

Add fresh ginger and organge peel.

Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda and ginger powder into a bowl.

Add the butter mixture and the egg.

Mix well, roll into a ball and let rest for a couple of hours in the refridgerator.

Heat the oven till 160 C.

Roll into balls of 2-2,5 cm diam, place them on baking paper, slightly thumbed down.

Bake in hot air for about 20 min.

Remove from baking paper to cool. Next time I’ll add some chili one way or another. How could I forget?
