This Ginger Biscuits Recipe is an old-fashioned recipe which delivers a thin, crisp biscuit that’s the perfect little accompaniment to a warm cup of something.
These biscuits are just the thing to remind you how the simple things in life can be the most wonderful and lovely.
They may not look too special, but the ginger punch combined with the golden syrup sweetness and crispy texture makes these biscuits moreish to the max!
A little therapy with your Ginger Biscuits?
The Ginger Biscuits themselves are lovely, but the process of baking them is also just so soothing.
No noisy mixers.
Feeling the butter and flour between your fingers.
Weighing and measuring.
Watching the golden syrup slowly make its way into the bowl.
And – my favourite part – cutting out the rounds and laying them carefully on baking trays.
