    Very tasty and easy to make.  -  01 Mar 2012


    Quite disappointed in the texture, it was more like cake than biscuit or cookie. Also, not sure about the measurements. For instance could hardly taste the ginger crystals. Sorry to be so negative.  -  27 Apr 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
