1 pinch salt
120g butter melted
¼ cup golden syrup

Preheat oven to 180C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
Combine the flour, bicarbonate soda, cardamom, ginger, black pepper and salt in a medium-sized bowl and whisk to combine.
In another bowl combine the melted butter, golden syrup, sugars, fresh ginger and egg and stir until well combined. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
Turn out to a lightly floured work surface and gently knead until you have a lovely soft dough. Then cover and place in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours.
