Traditional Gingernut Biscuits
Traditional Gingernut Biscuits are perhaps the biscuit recipe I make the most at home. This is my Mum’s recipe – and the only thing I have changed is that I have added a heap more ginger – I like them to have a bit of a kick about them. But if you want a milder taste, just cut the ginger in half.
Gingernut Biscuits are so easy to make and will keep for up to a week in a sealed airtight container.
You can find Ground Ginger in the spice section of your local supermarket.
