Needed a lot more ginger, a ginger biscuit should taste of ginger! - 27 Oct 2013
lovely recipe. Kids were eating the dough before I could cut it. Just one suggestion, roll dough on baking paper and cover with more paper. Then place in freezer for 10mins rather than overnight in the fridge. Cuts down the waiting time. - 13 Dec 2012
this recipe is very tasty, not too strong. the dough does need to be refrigerated just not too long. I chilled mine for the afternoon while I ran errands and it was rock hard. I had to let it sit for about 10 minutes before I could roll it. It doesn't get soft too fast, so it is fairly easy to work with. - 20 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
