I really liked these as a child and still do! They are so easy to make, but still very tasty, especially if you dunk them in your tea!
Absolutely scrummy! I doubled the ginger as I didn't have any clove (and don't like it much) and as others have suggested I baked for 10 - 12 minutes. The sugar on the outside gives a really nice crunch. Am now going to experiment adding chopped stem ginger to see if this works. - 26 Sep 2011
After having a rough few days and feeling very nauseous, I decided to exploit the nausea-calming properties of ginger and make these biscuits. Like many others, I, too, used two spoons of ginger. I also used a half and half mix of white sugar and brown sugar, and used self raising flour because I had no plain. I just left out the baking powder. They came out absolutely wonderful! VERY tasty with a glass of milk. No longer feeling ill, and the whole house smells wonderful, too :D - 09 Dec 2011
I have just made these! These are delicious! So much so I have just eaten 3 hot from the oven! I put in 2tsp Ginger, 1tsp cinnamon & no cloves (only as I had none) & rolled in natural Demerara! - 24 Jun 2010
