…and she’s off….sound of coconut shells…chime of little bells….twinkly stars…meteor showers forecast for the morning in the UK …the Christmas baking starts here…
Thanks to my mate Lynne for suggesting shortbread for Sunday baking and for the very naughty but nice Kate Shirazi book that these biscuits come from.
Have to go and have a munch now !
Joanna …these look fabulous…I do have to come clean and say it was actually another baking chum of mine…Gill…who suggested shortbread and she credits here husband Gerry with the idea….will just close my eyes and pretend I can eat a handful
Gingery, buttery, chocolatey goodness!
I love anything with ginger in it!
Wow, they look so good Joanna. I’m a sucker for both chocolate and ginger, so these sound amazing. Must make, must make…..
Thanks for the encouraging comments. :) They don’t look very elegant when I dip them in chocolate but never mind. The only problem with making biscuits is that someone has to eat them….or rather try not to eat too many in one go :)
That candied ginger dipped in dark chocolate is delish as well.
Apparently, Jo, you are not aware of the WordPress rule that disallows multiple posts on the same day! How can you bake and do so much posting too?
The second post is just a few pictures to take the taste of that strange bread away, took all of ten minutes …. ;)
They look marvelous- I LOVE ginger and shortbread.
Brian is now asking for proper ginger biscuits.. these were very short and crumbly but he forced himself to eat a plateful anyway, Heidi!
What an innovative idea to put ginger in shortbread! Finally a cookie that’s good for you! I’ll have any excuse to eat these exquisite dainties you made! Thanks for sharing!!!
Hey Arthur, I wish I had some of your artistry to transform them with – I love your blog so much :)
Beeyootiful!! And what a wonderful job you’ve done with the tempered chocolate, Jo, it’s all shiny and glossy! :)
Hi Celia – I’m just dip, dip dipping along – Tra la!
Oh lovely lovely lovely – especially that beautiful smiling face in the middle. Who would have the heart to eat it though?
