I made this for the first time yesterday and they are totally amazing better than the ginger biscuit you get in the shops. I live in Grantham and they do not make them anymore in the town.

Try them they are delicious.

I used to make these when I was younger and have been looking everywhere for the recipe as it was lost a long while ago, I am going to start making them again

This is the best recipe I have used but I did add some extra ginger to give them a real zing. So easy and family love them

Have looked long and hard for this recipe. It was in a Home and Freezer Digest in the 70s.
Agree with the previous poster it needs more ginger. I have also added crystallised ginger and also replaced the ginger with mixed spice and added chopped dried fruits. Dates apricots sultanas.
