I realise that I haven’t posted any recipes lately. It’s not because I haven’t been cooking, but more because I haven’t had the inspiration to come up with anything new. I had big plans to do some fun cooking during the school holidays, but it just didn’t happen. Luckily on Wednesday last week, I decided to make some biscuits for school lunches.
These honey ginger snaps are beautiful and crunchy on the outside, and soft on the inside. If you like them really crunchy, leave them in the oven a little longer – we like them chewy so I get them out a minute early.
