The idea for this recipe came about last week when I sadly reached the bottom of my tin of Fortnum & Mason’s “Lucifer’s Ginger & Chilli Biscuits”. I blame Michelle for this addiction, she got a tin from her husband for Christmas last year and let me taste!
These are my favourite biscuits, but given the cost and the fact that I’d have to have them sent to me (further increasing the cost) there’s just no way to easily sustain this biscuit habit, as much as I’d like to! What to do? Well simple really come up with your own (significantly cheaper) version. I found a basic biscuit recipe and began adapting it. Here’s the result, a ginger biscuit, with a nice chew of stem ginger and a good kick of chilli.7
