Recipe: Granny's Demarara Crunch Biscuits

My Granny has a reputation in my family for being a fabulous cook; over the weekend, I researched this theory thoroughly - it's very true.

Although this is what the scales read after the weekend; I wouldn't change a mouthful!

Make these biscuits with love & share with whomever you consider family:
  • 10 ounces S.R. Flour (280 grams)
  • 8 ounces softened Butter (225 grams)
  • 5 ounces Demerara sugar (140 grams)
  • 2 heaped teaspoons Ground ginger

Mix all ingredients together. Roll into balls around the size of a 20 cent piece (about 1.5 cms). Roll in icing sugar to enable you to roll into a round ball (if in a hot climate).

Place balls onto covered baking tray and push down vertically and horizontally with a fork – it makes a lovely pattern on the biscuit.

Bake in 180°C oven for 15 minutes – (possibly 150°C would suffice).

Makes 30.

oh yum...but, what kind of sugar is that? can i get it in the US?

Char, demarara sugar is like "Raw Sugar" not sure if you call it that name either. You should have it over there, it's a light brown colour, unrefined and crunchy (gives the biscuit the "crunch") - hope this helps :-)
