Ginger Crunch Cookies

Who loves a warm, spicy melt in your mouth biscuit straight from the oven, preferably while sipping a good cup of tea with your legs up relaxing in a comfy chair. 
Yep I would put my hand up for that!
 That's what these cookies do to me.. just make me feel all warm and cosy and the need to just chill for a while!

They have a gorgeous combination of cinnamon and ginger with chunks of glazed ginger sprinkled throughout and a finished crunch of almond. Devine.

Could be even better than a holiday... hmmm maybe not quite! That's what i am truly in the need of though a holiday.. not a sight seeing or "tripping" round kinda holiday but one that involves doing N.O.T.H.I.N.G!

The pure indulgence of sitting around in a beach chair on a sandy secluded stretch of beach with a good book,  my toes scrunched up in the sand, the wind playing in my hair, the seagulls squawking in the background and a nice Ginger Crunch Cookie to munch on... yep that would suit me right to the ground just about now!

Anyone else feeling the New Year Blues? The New Year Blues seem to hit around now i think. Holiday season is over, school and work have started back and the reality of the daily grind gets you!

I have just the solution for the New Year Blues...... yep a Ginger Crunch Cookie (That's if you can't have a holiday)!

2 Cups Plain Flour
½ Tsp Bicarb Soda
1 Tsp Cinnamon
2 Tsp Ground Ginger
1 Cup Castor Sugar
125g Butter
1 Egg
1 Tsp Golden Syrup
2 Tbsp Glace Ginger – Finely Chopped

1.    Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
2.    In a bowl place sifted dry ingredients and butter. Rub together with fingertips until a “crumb” forms and butter is rubbed in.
3.    Add egg, golden syrup, and glace ginger and mix together until combined.
4.    Knead on a floured surface until smooth.
5.    Roll round teaspoons of mixture into balls, place on lined cookie tray and flatten slightly and press in an almond. Place each biscuit 3cm apart.
6.    Cook for 20 min or until golden brown.

These cookies would make a great the perfect gift, boxed up with one of our bags of 100g pouches of Tea in a little hamper. I packed these cookies in a large cupcake box and finished it off with brown paper, jute twine and cardboard which i had lying around!

Simply Tea Selections

A great Simply Tea blend to accompany this gingery cookie would be it's ginger twin - Thai Delight. It is a zesty blend of lemongrass and ginger which creates a refreshing and wild taste sensation. You can purchase this taste sensation for $13.00/100g or a sample bag for $2.

Yes, Please I'll have that!
 If that wild combination is a bit much for your taste buds a milder recommendation would be our Pu-erh Oolong. A special semi-fermented tea with a typical earthy, light and sweet taste, has many therapeutic qualities, often taken for indigestion and cholesterol ailments. This tea is packed full of health benefits and you can learn more about this tea here. You can purchase our Pu-erh Oolong for $10.00/100g or $2.00 for a sample pack.
