I've been baking, sewing and glueing up a storm today for a certain baby shower I'm helping put together for tomorrow.
While I can't reveal my sewing adventures, I can tell you that these are seriously the best biscuits EVER.
Grandma's ginger biscuits. Part of the anzacs/shortbread/ginger biscuits trio (family you know what this means). I've no idea where her recipe came from, but they are AWESOME. Dunk these babies in a cup of tea and see what I'm talking about.
And since it's Friday, I'll share the recipe with you...written exactly as she wrote it out for me.
GRANDMA'S GINGER BISCUITS:
- 2 cups plain flour
- 5 teaspns ground ginger
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 125g melted butter or margarine
- 2/3 cup honey
- Place dry ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine
- Melt honey and butter/marg in a small saucepan until bubbling
- Add to dy ingredients and mix well
- Place teaspoon sized amounts onto a greased tray
- Place in oven set to 200 degrees c
- Bake for 10 mins then change trays on shelves
- Bake for another 5 - 10 mins
Note from Grandma - if cooked too long they go very hard. Be careful on your teeth.
Note from me - bear in mind this recipe needs a little alteration for fan forced or hot ovens like mine.
