These fiery ginger biscuits are easy to make and a joy to eat! Crisp on the outside and slightly chewy in the middle, they make the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon cuppa or a mug of hot chocolate, and will keep well for a few days in an airtight tin (if you can resist eating them all at once!).
