A Christmas staple when I was growing up

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: About 12

Ingredients

50g butter

50g brown sugar

50g golden syrup

50g plain flour, sifted

¼ tsp ground ginger

zest of 0.5 lemon

1 tspn lemon juice juice

1 tspn brandy

vegetable oil to grease

Directions

1Heat oven to 180C

2Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof

3Put the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan and heat gently until the butter and sugar have melted.

4Put the flour and ginger into a bowl and make a well in the centre.

5Add the lemon zest and juice and the brandy.

6Pour in the butter mixture and gradually beat it into the flour until the mixture is thoroughly combined.

7Use a teaspoon to dollop 3 - 4 heaps of mixture onto the lined baking tray. Space them well apart as they will spread.

8Cook for 8 – 10 mins until set, golden brown and lacy in appearance.

9Try not to let them go too dark as they will taste bitter.

10Leave for a minute before shaping – the snaps should still be pliable but set enough to move without tearing.

11Shape into cigars, oil the handle of a wooden spoon and wrap the brandy snap around. If you have a long handle or more than one spoon, you can do a few at a time.

12Slide off the handle

13Work quickly and cool on a wire rack

14Fill with whipped cream to serve
