ingredients

makes 36
225 g (8 oz) plain flour
10 ml (2 tsp) ground ginger
5 ml (1 tsp) ground mixed spice
75 g (3 oz) fine oatmeal
75 g (3 oz) caster sugar

method

1. Put the flour, ginger, spice, oatmeal, sugar and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl and mix together.

2. Heat the treacle and butter in a small pan until melted. Pour on to dry ingredients and mix to make a smooth dough. Knead well.

3. Roll the dough out until about 0.5 cm (1/4 inch) thick. Prick with a fork and cut out 6.5 cm (2 1/2 inch) rounds with a plain cutter. Place on greased baking sheets and bake at 170°C (325°F) mark 3 for 20-25 minutes, until firm to the touch. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
