Sugared-Topped Ginger Biscuits

1 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
pinch salt
1 1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground clove
65g butter melted, or 1/2 oil such as grape seed oil
2 tbs treacle
2 tbs milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

2 tbs sugar extra (can use demerera sugar if you have it)

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C. Place non-stick baking paper on large biscuit tray.

Mix together flour, bicarb soda, salt, sugar and spices. Separately mix melted butter, treacle, milk and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.

Roll into 1 inch balls, slightly flatten them and press into extra sugar. Place a little apart on the tray (they will spread a little) and bake for 11 minutes. They will be very soft at this point but will firm up as they cool, (if you bake them until firm they will be too hard to eat!).

this is a weird recipe, don't usually see milk in biscuit recipes. got a little confused in ingredients when it said 2 tbsp of milk then below that half a cup of milk?
biscuits turned out quite nice, more like little scones though- good with butter :)

Where is the amount of sugar to be mixed with the dry ingredients?

I'm guessing one of the two milk ingredients be the sugar quantity?

Thank you Anonymous for pointing out what is in fact a typo. Sorry about that - it is now fixed.
