Preheat the oven to 180°C
In a small saucepan, combine butter, sugar and golden syrup. On low heat, stir to combine the ingredients as they melt.
Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into a large mixing bowl, making a well in the centre. Add the melted butter, sugar and golden syrup and stir to combine. It should all come together to form a soft dough.
Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls, place on the baking tray (lined with baking paper). Flatten them slightly with a fork to create the ridged texture on the top.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden and leave to cool.
