Having a nice cup of tea makes me feel like winding down, getting warm and dunking biscuits. It happens to be my perfect evening drink when a glass of wine isn’t beckoning. A scrumptious chewy biscuit is just the thing I love that pairs perfectly with a cuppa.

    Great recipe.

    I made these with good quality orange extract instead of zest and fresh grated ginger instead of ground

    I also decorated them with pieces of crystallised ginger

    They were delicious!
