You’ll be left with a satisfying sense of awe and wonder every time you dip a piece into your hot beverage of choice and experience the tingle of the subtle spice.

Homemade gingerbread biscuits tips

The beautiful thing about this recipe is that you may get somewhat soft and chewy biscuits or more snappy gingerbread cookies depending on the timing. To wow your visitors, use cookie cutters of different shapes and sizes and decorate with icing. In spite of their widespread appeal all year round, the Christmas season is when these cookies really come into their own, thanks to the variety of shapes and designs that may be made. Wrap them up and give them as presents, or just enjoy them with a cup of tea and some company.

Ginger biscuits from the store can’t compare to the homemade kind, so why not bake some right now?
