Original recipe yields 12 baskets

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease baking sheets.
  2. Sift together flour and ginger.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, sugar and syrup and cook until butter is melted. Allow to cool.
  4. Stir flour mixture and lemon rind into syrup. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared sheets, well spaced apart, as the mixture will spread.
  5. Bake 10 to 15 minutes in preheated oven, until golden. Remove from oven and let cool 1 minute. Have ready 5 small bowls, their undersides buttered. Gently lift the brandy snap off the tray and bend it over a bowl to shape. Remove baskets when cooler and set.

I made these and filled them with strawberries and coolwhip for a mother daughter tea at our church. Everyone commented how delicious they were.I made 140 of them by myself and they were a lot easier to do then I expected. I spent a number of days looking for something just like this to make. Great recipe!!!

I was really excited to try this recipe! I made my own golden syrup from a recipe I found online, and perhaps that's part of what went wrong. The flavor was great, but I had a big problem getting it to unpeel from my pan, despite heavy oiling, and once I did, it didn't really work when attached to a bowl. I think next time I'll bend it over a small drinking glass, my bowls were too big. Any ideas for how to make it not stick so bad? When it set up it was too rigid, I couldn't get it to separate from my bowl without breaking.

ive used this recipe for years. once you get going it goes quickly. i wrap mine around a 1/2" dowel and then fill with whipped cream. these can be made weeks ahead until needed. if you have parchment paper or the teflon baking sheets use those on your cookies sheets to make the lifting easier.
