Set oven to 450F or Mark 8. Grease baking sheets. Melt the butter,
syrup and sugar together in a saucepan over a very gentle heat.
Stir in the flour, ground ginger and the brandy. Beat together for
about 5 minutes. Drop small teaspoonsful on to the baking sheet,
spaced well apart. Bake for 5 minutes until pale golden brown in
colour. Roll immediately, while still hot, around the greased handle
of a large wooden spoon. Set aside to cool. These are delicious
filled with freshly whipped cream.
