Great cookies, I got them from and English friend of mine.

Top Review by Millereg

Ah... childhood memories! I had completely forgotten how much I enjoyed these little diamonds as a kid and was overjoyed to see that some astute person had unearthed a good recipe for them. I used caster sugar (for smoother texture), fresh ground ginger (that's the purist in me) and good English treacle instead of molasses (accept no American wannabe-treacle substitute). Mirj, you've never let me down, and this is no exception.
