Gingernut Biscuits

Another recipe from the family cookbooks that I inherited from my Mother and my Grandmother. I can almost smell these baking when I close my eyes and think of Gran. A "memory" recipe as well as a yummy treat. If you make these into very little balls, about the size of an oversized marble or a gobstopper then you will get the cookies as shown in my photograph, and the centers will be ever so slightly chewy. These are traditionally a very hard crisp biscuit (cookie) made for dunking into tea or coffee, and the bigger you make the balls the crunchier the end result.Usually I store these in an airtight container to keep them crisp, but if you made some of these crunchier and you want them REALLY chewy after all, just leave some out of the container for a while and hey presto... divine which ever way you prefer them. ZWT REGION: New Zealand.
