METHOD:
  1. In a large bowl mix the butter until it is soft and creamy. Add the brown sugar and maple syrup and mix until combined and creamy looking. Next beat in eggs and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and cloves together until combined. Split dough into two and wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge for 3 hours.
  3. Preheat over to 180 C. Line 2-3 baking trays with grease proof paper.

  5. Bake biscuits for about 9-10 minutes.
