Great for tea parties. Crisp without being crumbly.
Thanks so much for this recipe, it's now my new favourite! When trying a recipe for the first time, I always make it as it states but I was 25g short on the butter so substituted peanut butter as I was desperate for a biscuit! Anyhow, no other changes were made. Despite me thinking there was not enough ground ginger in the recipe for my tastes, I stuck to the 1 tsp. they're delicious. Very gentle but still 'gingery'. I'll stick to this amount in future bakes too. The biscuits are crisp but as you say, not crumbly. I used a tablespoon cookie scoop and got 30 cookies exactly to this recipe and they cooked for 12 minutes. They are good sized cookies too. I rolled them in the sugar on one side, put this side face up and then flattened a bit with a fork. I absolutely love this recipe!! Thank you again. I've uploaded a couple of photos for you too <3 xxx Oh and just FYI...85 calories a cookie if you get 30 like me. The whole recipe, as stated is approximately 2560 calories so divide that by however many cookies you actually get xxx - 24 Oct 2013
I added the stem ginger half way through as i didn't think it would be distributed very evenly if i added it at the end, i also added less as i didn't want them to be too gingery, i had no dark sugar so used light instead, i cooked them for about 15 minutes - mmmm lovely - 02 Sep 2012
These were amazing!!!! I made a batch to take on a Cruise as it had been recommended to take Crystallised Stem Ginger as a seasickness remedy and I thought that biscuits might be yummy. Needless to say the first batch won't make it :0) - 18 Oct 2013
