This is a lighter gingerbread biscuit recipe using freshly grated ginger instead of the powdered variety. The result is a lighter biscuit, both in taste and colour. If you really like intense ginger flavour, you can increase the amount stated by another teaspoon.
Chilling the dough before rolling and cutting out the gingerbread men will result in cleaner, more defined edges on your biscuits. You can chill the dough for an hour, or even up to overnight.
They came out delicious. We used 2 teaspoons of ginger but only due to personal preference. Our 2 year old had lots of fun making them! - 10 Jul 2016
Really scrummy! Definitely lighter but the taste still has a little of the ginger heat - perfect! - 25 May 2016
i just made this with my children aged 3 and 18 mths and we all had heaps of fun. the recipe is easy and i had everything required in the cupboard and it taste great. we will be making this again very soon. we also didn't bother about icing them we just had them plain. - 11 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
