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 : )))

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 180C (350 F) or 170C if using gas or fan forced oven.
  • Cream the first three ingredients in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, combine the last four ingredients.
  • Mix together til combined, but don't overmix.
  • 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.
  • Cool for a couple of minutes on the tray, and then lift to a rack. Store when totally cool in an airtight container.

    These biscuits need a lot of space on the tray. Mine spread into one mega-biscuit! I think Arnotts probably also use lemon flavouring in their recipe.

    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.

    Oh My, these are so very good. I have to give it 5 stars just for making it through to yummy even though I had to improvise so much. 1st I didn't have self rising flour so I made it with 1-1/4 t. baking powder to each cup of flour. 2nd, I only have regular sugar...so I used that. 3rd I don't have golden syrup...I used Agave Nectar. Finally, I only had 6 t. of fresh ginger so I added 4 t. of dry powder. The cookies are very delicious and great for dunkin in Tea. Thanks for the great flexible recipe!

    Wow! These are fabulous! So crunchy and tasty! I used 4 tsp of ground ginger *all I had* and I used fresh grated ginger for the rest and they taste amazing! Perfect color, crunch, and taste! Thanks for posting this recipe. I made these to go with Recipe #102281. These were the perfect "crust" to sprinkle onto the ice cream.
