Grantham Gingerbreads

More food, but this time, home made biscuits called (as the title suggests) Grantham Gingerbreads. They are very crunchy with hollow spaces inside and are flavoured with ginger as you might expect. I thought that they were an old family recipe, closely guarded through the generations and only written down in the family recipe book, but I then discovered the recipe in a commercially printed biscuit book! All my romantic notions quickly crumbled away.
Despite this disappointment, it remains one of my favourite recipes as they are quick and easy to make and usually turn out very well. In fact, to be very pretentious, they are the closest thing I have to a 'signature dish'!
