These ginger bread biscuits are so so tasty and really easy to make. They would be a great treat to get little ones involved with baking, cookie cutting was always my favourite job. Β I made this batch Halloween themed, but with some Christmas cookie cutters you can adapt them for a holiday themed treat! They will keep for about a week in an air tight container…. if they last that long….
