Rachel's ginger biscuits

    25 min

    This is a great ginger biscuit recipe that I have made numerous times over the years, hence the ingredients are in ounces! They have a lovely subtle ginger flavour and a great texture. Leave them a few minutes longer in the oven if you like your biscuits crispy and crunchy. These do spread so give them some space when spooning them onto the trays.
