Ginger Biscuits

It's been a while since I've done any baking (as opposed to cooking), so today I felt like making some ginger biscuits - which I haven't made since school (reminded by @ClaireMaxim1 tweet about rock cakes - something I also used to make as a child)! The instructions from my mum (who'd forgotten about these) were: 8oz (225g) SR Flour 4oz (Hard marge e.g. Stork) 1 teaspoon bicarb of soda 1 level teaspoon ground ginger 4oz…

#BIGRead14: Amen #Luke2Acts
