In an attempt to use up the stem ginger I had, a friend suggested I make ginger biscuits, and top with a little stem ginger. We had seen such biscuits in the Wellcome Collection cafe so I wondered: how hard could it be? The recipe, one from Baking Magic, looked simple enough.
Oh but how wrong I was! Despite following the recipe pretty much to the letter, the dough ended up too dry and possibly “over-worked”.
They tasted alright but really too dry – you needed a cup of tea or a glass of water with these!
I think I need to practise my biscuit making – there is clearly a knack to it – so one to try again later…
