1. Place the flour, brown sugar, bicarbonate of soda and ginger in a food processor, add the butter and process until the mixture resembles fin breadcrumbs.

2. Lightly beat the egg and syrup together, then add to the dry ingredients. Blend until a firm dough is formed.

Lightly grease the base of a drinking glass with butter and press into the white sugar. Press the glass lightly on top of the biscuits to flatten. Repeat with butter and sugar when necessary. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the baking sheet and place on a cooling rack.
