Ginger is something I have tried to understand over the last few years. My husband has rheumatoid arthritis and takes medication for it that makes him nauseous. I researched ways to help him deal with the nausea and the answer, hands down, was ginger. So we’ve tried ginger in hot water and shop bought ginger biscuits. Today I get to make him Mrs Beeton’s ginger biscuits. Let’s see if they help!
- 454g / 16 oz plain flour
- 227g / 8oz butter
- 227g / 8oz castor sugar
- 22g ground ginger
- 2 eggs
Rub the flour and ginger together with the flour. Once the ingredients are incorporated mix in the sugar.
Roll out on a floured surface into a thin sheet. Cut biscuits using a cutter. Put onto a baking tray and cook for 20 minutes at 170. Or until browned.
I am not a big fan of ginger biscuits but these were delicious. Very gingery! It’s quite a nice hot taste.
And Mrs Beeton is redeemed after her madeira disaster. The biscuits are good! (Although I will say that the recipe specifies sugar in the ingredients but then doesn’t deal with what to do with the sugar in the method. So I improvised!).
