Made a batch of these over the weekend. I found that the ginger flavour didn't come through very strong so will double the ginger quantity next time. Also, the cooking time was far shorter for me, around 15-20 minutes. The biscuits came out very nicely though, light and crunchie!
Very easy to make. I halved the recipe also as 48 biscuits would easily expand my wasteline. Also i added more ginger.
These biscuits were extremely yummy and also easy to make with my five year old. I halved the recipe and used a lot more ginger, as I just love very gingery things. Also they took 15 minutes to bake in my oven. Will definitely make these again, thankyou Nikki.
