Cornish Fairings

My housemate claims that this is the best tea-dunking biscuit ever! Its hard consistency becomes chewy without falling apart in tea. These are lovely & crunchy biscuits that I made for my business mentor for his 86th birthday. fortunately he still has teeth to enjoy them!

100g gluten free flour (mix of rice, tapioca, potato flour & ¼ tsp of xantham gum)

a pinch of salt

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

1tsp ground ginger

½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg

40g golden caster sugar

50g dairy-free margarine

1tsp crystallized ginger, finely chopped

3 tbsp golden syrup

  1. Preheat the oven, gas mark 6
  2. Sift all the dry ingredients (apart from the crystallized ginger) together
  3. Rub in the margarine until it resembles breadcrumbs
  4. Stir in the mixed peel, then the syrup
  5. Using your hands, roll the dough into 20 marble sized balls. Space well apart on a prepared baking sheet
  6. Bake for 7-10mins, or until golden
