  2. Combine flour, 1 tsp. ginger, and baking powder; add to the butter mixture.
  3. Put into a greased shortbread pan (or a 7-8" round or square baking pan) and bake at 325 F (170 C) for about 40 minutes or until done.
  4. While the shortbread is baking, prepare the icing: melt together the butter, ginger, and golden syrup in a saucepan over low heat until blended and smooth.
  5. Pour the icing over the hot shortbread and let it cool a little.
  6. When the icing has cooled a bit, decorate the top with pieces of candied ginger.

  9. *Note:You may leave out the candied ginger- some may find it too spicy, especially children.
