Crunchy and sweet ginger brandy snaps. A delicious sweet on their own or stuff with cream and sprinkle with icing sugar to make a fantastic dessert. Yum!
First, preheat the oven to 200C / 180C Fan / 400F
Gather all of the ingredients together.
Add the sugar, butter, brandy, and syrup to a medium saucepan.
Heat the sugar, butter, and syrup to over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Do not boil and burn.
Sieve the flour and ground ginger into the sweet mixture and also add the lemon zest.
Mix this well to a thick consistency. Make sure there are no lumps.
Using a teaspoon, spoon dollops of the sweet mixture onto the lined baking trays. Ensure there is plenty of space around each spoonful as the mixture will spread when baking. You may need more than one baking tray.
Now, place the baking tray in the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes or until the ginger brandy snaps are slightly bubbling and colored.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and leave for 3-5 minutes to cool. Once the ginger brandy snaps can be lifted from the paper with a pallet knife then remove and gently fold around the handle of a wooden spoon, or similar.
And that's it. Once cooled remove from the spoon handle and enjoy. Delicious ginger brandy snaps ready to eat or fill with cream. Yum!
