    Lovely, gingery biscuits with both ground ginger and stem ginger. They can be made vegan by using a vegan margarine rather than butter.

    Made these today. very crumbly could use double the amount of golden syrup. I also used 2 globes of stem ginger 4x the amount although i think it could still do with more. It was very tasty  -  18 Feb 2013
