Wow, these are gingery! If you love ginger, (like me) this is the recipe for you! However, I do say, these are more sophisticated than the "traditional" ginger cookies. I would serve this more for a wintery dinner party, more than I would for when the kids come home from school. I did not have "golden syrup" or "candied ginger" but, that's my fault, not Heatherfeather's, but I can't imagine that these could come out any better than they did. HeatherFeather - good job! I highly recommend this.
OUTSTANDING. My family really really loved these ginger Shortbreads. I thought that they were easy to make. I stuck to the recipe. The icing was just devine. What a liked about this recipe, besides it's yummy taste, was that all the ingredients were in my pantry. Being eggless was an added bonus. I will be making these for Christmas presents. Like Mimi, I highly recommend this recipe. Thank you Heather. :-)
