Nippy ginger biscuits

It is bloomin hot!!! I think it’s never been so hot in Scotland, our flat has skylights in the kitchen and the hall and it feels like we live in a green house. I’m finding it very hard to cook or bake at the moment without feeling like passing out from heat stroke. I did however galvanise myself yesterday to bake some biscuits for toddler group. I’m calling them nippy ginger biscuits as Arthur tucked in really enthusiastically only to discover that all the ginger made his tongue hurt. “Oh nooooooo!!! Nippy mummy nippy.” Sadie however was completely un phased by their spiciness and I personally think what is the point of a wimpy ginger biscuit? So these come with a toddler warning. If your little one prefers a milder taste you can just put half the ginger in no problem. But if your feeling daring whack the lot in and enjoy!
