  1. Does anyone have a ginger biscuit recipe without either molases or golden syrup. Both are unavailable in Brazil.
    If possible one that uses fresh ginger and not powder.
    please send your reply to [email protected]

  2. Nice gingery taste, crisp but far too sweet for me. Did cook them for 12 minutes, but need to be watched because of possibility to burn. I turned oven off after 10 minutes. I probably wouldn’t cook again because of the sweetness.

    • Next day and taste better. I must have been eating too much raw mix last night. Still a little sweet, but okay.

  3. I just made these biscuits but changed the recipe so it was dairy and gluten free. The biscuits worked out fine – crisp and a little crumby. I used the same amounts as per recipe but used dairy free spread and Healtheries Baking Mix.
