    These were good. A soft biscuit not crisp. Had no glacé ginger so added 4 tsp ginger. Could have added more. Didn't have fresh dates. Used pitted dried dates and chopped for 10 seconds. Had these for my FIL 92nd birthday. He was happy 😊

  • The best ginger biscuits

    Submitted by LHarrison on 7. November 2016 - 19:19.

    The best ginger biscuits ever. I also reduced sugar to 90grams and next time would try 80grams as the date makes them super sweet already. Really soft and yummy! I had to cook mine a tiny bit longer.

    I used  gluten free flour and it was very adaptable. It makes them soft & chewy .

    Submitted by Adakat on 2. October 2015 - 15:36.

    A soft cakey cookie. On another suggestion I used 300 grams pitted dates and no glace ginger. I upped the ground ginger to 5 teaspoons. My mix made 32 biscuits. Thumbs up from Mr 7 and me  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Yummy, yummy! I didn't have any glace ginger so I used 300g of dried pitted dates and chopped them for a little longer.  I also used Nuttlex (dairy free butter) rolled them into teaspoon sized balls and pressed them with a fork! It made 75 biscuits!!!! Family favourite for sure!!!  Cooking 7

    These are yum, although I agree with Sharon... Next time, I'll try reducing the sugar to see how little I can get away with...  A big hit with the family. Thank you!

    Submitted by Sharon Bill on 21. October 2013 - 15:23.

    These smelt so good when they baking.   I reduced sugar to 90g and they were still flavourful. Maybe next time I'll make them smaller and flatten them so they look more like biscuits rather than rock cakes.  Very tasty. Thanks for sharing.
