Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Mix the sugar, butter, and the ground and grated ginger into a smooth paste, then slowly add the plain flour to form a soft dough. Place on a lightly floured work surface and roll out until the dough is about 1cm thick.
Using a round pastry cutter, cut out the shortbread and put on a baking tray. Slice the stem ginger and put a small piece in the centre of each shortbread. Sprinkle some caster sugar on top.
Bake for 10 minutes until the shortbreads are just starting to colour round the edges. Cool before serving.
