1 +1/4 cups soft brown sugar/ country sugar

4 tbsp honey / golden syrup

1/4 tsp nutmeg powder

Chocolate chips

Nuts ( walnut&cashew)


Excluding the chocolate chips and nuts,mix

the rest of the ingredients together.

Divide portions and place each on a greased

baking tray.Press each portion to make a

cookie .

I made 3 variations of cookies from the same


•A plain ginger cookie

•Ginger-chocolate and walnut

•Ginger-chocolate and cashew nut.

Festive seasons make your imaginations frisky

to try out different recipes.

My favourite childhood biscuits were ginger

biscuits.I love the taste and aroma of these

biscuits.In fact,there was a bakery close to my

parental home,which baked these ginger

cookies almost daily .When it is 3 in the

evening the aroma of these cookies captivate

the air around,and the biscuit jars will be full


I have posted the recipe with 2 variations of

nuts and chocolate.You could add ginger chips

if you need the extra punch of ginger.

Any type of your favourite nuts,may be added .

So do try this recipe needed for the season.

Tip:To make mixing more easier,grate the

butter into the flour.

Do not knead the mixture .

Even if it looks like breadcrumbs,in the

process of mixing ,you will be able to make

cookie balls.
