Ginger. Maybe my favourite spice. It’s a different kind of heat to other spices. I love that tingle!

So I love the ginger tingle, and I love a good biscuit, so I decided this past blustery cold weekend needed a warming ginger biscuit. But no ordinary, namby pamby ginger biscuit. I give you the extreme ginger cookie.

I’ve used four different types of ginger in these babies: ground ginger, fresh ginger, stem ginger and ginger Spice Drops.

They’re the perfect treat for this time of year – they warm you up, not too sweet and perfect to dunk in a hot chocolate or a cuppa. The ginger is extreme – and so is the risk you’ll be going back for more!
