You will need:
1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 light corn syrup
3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 cup self-rising flour*
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking soda
Melt butter, syrup and sugar in a pan over medium-low heat until just blended. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool for a few minutes. Sift the flour, ginger, and baking soda over the mixture; blend until smooth. Place small spoonfuls on greased baking sheet immediately; bake at 350º for ten minutes. The cookies should be golden brown with crazed tops.
*Update by Angela: 1 cup self-rising flour = 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. Thanks Angela!
