Crunchy Ginger Snaps (Similar to Arnotts Gingernut)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by RubberDucky AU

Snappy, crunchy, golden brown ginger cookies perfect for dunking. Easy, and very delicious. Because I use Aussie measurements I'll write in teaspoons to avoid international confusion : )))

Great recipe - really simple to make, and delicious (I used fresh ground ginger only, which I recommend). My only disappointment was that these aren't really like Arnott's Ginger Nut. With this recipe the biscuits wind up thinner than (mine were a lot like in the existing photo above), and definitely not as tough as, the Ginger Nut. Still, a delicious recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180C (350 F) or 170C if using gas or fan forced oven.
  2. Cream the first three ingredients in a bowl.
  3. In another bowl, combine the last four ingredients.
  4. Mix together til combined, but don't overmix.
  5. Bake teaspoonfuls on a greased tray for 10 mins, or until the entire biscuit is golden brown. If you only cook til it has golden edges you will get a chewy biscuit. It needs to be the same deep golden brown over the whole biscuit.
  6. Cool for a couple of minutes on the tray, and then lift to a rack. Store when totally cool in an airtight container.
