The past week has been rather stressful for me and I have been longing for some comfort food in the form of home-baked cookies. And for some reason, ginger snap biscuits were on my mind. I’m not sure why because I haven’t eaten ginger snap biscuits since … at least 5 years ago when I left Australia??
A quick flick through some of my cookbooks and I found a nice and simple recipe in Rachel Allen’s Bake; nice because it was spot on what I was looking for, and simple because I happened to have all of the ingredients at home and I didn’t even need to wait for the butter to soften.
If you have visited my blog before, you will have noticed a few Rachel Allen recipes here and there. I really love her books and her recipes are often easy to follow and require little fuss.
If you own Bake, you will realise that Rachel’s recipe is fairly easy and straightforward. I took an even lazier option and did everything in my KitchenAid.
These biscuits will fill your kitchen with a heady aroma of ginger and mixed spices, a comforting sign in itself. And the moment you sit down to a few biscuits with a cup of tea, life is already better.
