I’m not even going to bother giving you a fancy story about this recipe. Basically, I was making something else and had leftover ginger so whipped this recipe up. I personally think ginger is underrated and I feel that this recipe does it justice. The recipe is meant to be crumbly and have the texture of a digestive biscuit, so don’t be alarmed if your dough doesn’t come together as easily as traditional biscuit recipes.

* I used wholemeal self-raising flour as the texture is a little more coarse than traditional flour and I like the texture of it. You can always sub out for normal self-raising flour.
