    Ginger nut biscuits are my favourite so couldnt wait to make these. The mixture was quite sticky so I ended up dropping teaspoon fulls of it on the baking tray, rather than rolling it into balls, and then flattening slightly. They turned out amazing, huge hit, will never buy them again. Thank you so much for sharing!! Big Smile
