Recipe Ginger Nut Seed Biscuits

Prepare yourself for the MVP of ALL biscuits/cookies (whichever way you swing)!!! These beauties are almost macaroon in their outer texture. Crispy, crunchy and caramelised sugars on the outside. But inside, chewy and filled with spicy sweet ginger, nuts and earthy seeds. I actually think these surpass any biscuit I’ve made before (yes that includes my chocolate chip cookies!!!! BIG I KNOW). The mixture is quite wet but don’t be alarmed! This is what gives the biscuits their unique outer coating. Melt in the mouth, delish and using the best Australian ingredients – what could be better? 😍
