Hi,

If anyone has any good ginger receipe for snacks please let me know!

Hi mum 78, (we meet again...)
I read your post on ginger bikkies, and thought that was a great idea. I am also looking at something to help with nausea, and, after reading your post went straight to my cookbooks to see what I could find. Here are a few recipes from a Family Circle Biscuit Cookbook. I have not made any of them but I do intend on making the first recipe "ginger biscuits". Hope these help.

Ginger Biscuits

125g butter
1/4 c treacle
2 c plain flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp bi-carb soda

1) In a small pan, stir together butter and tracle until melted.
2) Sift together flour, ginger and soda in a mixing bowl. Stir in sugar. Add syrup mixture and egg. Beat until combined.
3). Roll heaped teaspoonfuls of dough into small balls. Arrange on greased baking trays. Flatten slightly with a fork. Press a small piece of ginger into the centre of each biscuit.
4). Bake at 180 degreese C for 12 - 15 minutes until golden. Cool slightly on tray. Remove to wire rack, cool completely. Drizzle melted chocolate over biscuits. Let stand until firm.
