  • 1/4 cup crystallised ginger (pressed through a garlic press)

  2. Melt butter, sugar & rice malt syrup together in a saucepan on low heat. Remove from heat once all melted.
  3. Add flour & both gingers, then stir to combine. Spoon onto baking tray, allowing enough space for biscuits to double in size.

  • 2 egg whites (room temperature)
  • pinch of salt

Method

  1. Heat oven to 90 degrees & line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. Using a stand mix, whisk egg whites & salt together until peaks form. With whisk running, slowly add sugar one tablespoon at a time until all incorporated.
  3. Transfer mixture into a piping bag & pipe small meringues (approx 3-5cm diameter) onto tray.
  4. Bake in oven for 3hrs & allow oven to fully cool down before removing trays. Store in an air-tight container.
