Double ginger make these biscuits a spicy hit. The soft dough means they always turn out perfectly round. 

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup golden syrup
2/3 cup rice bran oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup wholemeal flour
1 cup white flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 cup crystallised ginger, finely sliced

Preheat oven to 180°C. Whisk the sugars, egg, golden syrup, oil and vanilla essence together until well combined. Sift in the flours, baking soda and spices. 

Mix to form a soft dough. 

Roll into small balls and place on a baking tray. Press slices of crystallised ginger into the top of the balls, close together — the biscuits will expand as they cook and the ginger will spread apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on the tray before transferring to a wire rack.
