Melt 200 gr. margarine and let cool (this is about 1 3/4 sticks of marg, I use Land o’ Lakes)
1 cup sugar
1oo mL syrup (I use Caro corn syrup, you could use something higher end like Lyle’s Golden Syrup, there should be a 100mL measure on the side of your mom’s liquid measuring cup, otherwise 100mL is between 1/3 and a 1/2 cup)
2 tsp ground ginger & clover & cinnamon
Separately mix together 2 cups flour, 2 tsp baking soda & 1 tsp baking powder.
Mix into the dry ingredients.
Then start to mix in more flour in 1/3 to 1/2 c scoops until the mixture doesn’t really stick to your fingers when you press on it. In total, you will need about an additional 1 3/4 cups flour.
Let sit in the fridge at least 3 hours, ideally overnight before you make the first batch. Roll out thinly, cut shapes and bake at 350 for about 6 mins. If the shapes are small and really thin and the oven hot, 5 mins.
