Method
  • Heat a pan over high heat until it gets very hot. Add the butter and wait for it to melt. Lower heat and wait for it to brown. This may take from 2-3 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from heat and transfer to a bowl.
  • Measure your dry spices in a small bowl. Mix and add them to the bowl with the butter and stir to combine.
  • Add the brown sugar and honey. Use a hand whisk to combine. Add the freshly grated ginger, egg and egg yolk and whisk together to get a smooth mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the butter mixture to the flour mixture and mix with a spoon. Do not mix too long or else the batter will stiffen.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 150* C (300* F) Fan.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Pour some granulated sugar onto a plate.
  • Use a teaspoon to pick up a small quantity of dough and shape into small balls and drop into plate with sugar.
  • When you have 5 or 10 balls in the plate, roll to coat in sugar.
  • Place them on baking sheet leaving enough space between them. Do not place more than 20 balls onto each baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Halfway into baking time, rotate baking sheets so the cookies can bake evenly.
  • Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
