While down the south coast for a little getaway, we baked biscuits. A special treat to gift to friends and family. We also filled a tin just for us.....to be eaten on Christmas Eve when we finish our Christmas story. They are a lovely easy biscuit to make with children and not too sweet. If I made them again I would add a little more of the spices...perhaps even some cloves.
I don't think these biscuits can be a part of the real food series, however here is the recipe*. As always try to source organic and local ingredients......
simple gingerbread biscuits
100 grams soft butter
50 grams brown sugar (I used about 30 grams as it was all I had and they are lovely)
150 grams molasses
360 grams plain flour (we used a mix of white spelt and plain)
pinch of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon bicarb
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons ginger
mix all together, bake in moderate oven until golden.
