Chocolate and Fresh Ginger Biscuits


In my grater family I have Catholics, Orthodoxes and Muslims, so celebrating our similarities and differences is something that we take seriously. It usually starts in November (my sons birthdays), and last for 3 months. A lot of biscuits is baked, eaten and given as a gift during this period.
Chocolate Ginger Biscuits are 'must-have' in my home, especially during upcoming holidays.
Ingredients:
5-7 cm fresh ginger, peeled and grated
185 g flour
2 tbs cocoa
115 g wholemeal flour
1/4 teas salt
1/4 teas black pepper, freshly grounded
225 g butter, softened
185 g brown sugar
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 teas vanilla essence
chocolate (dark or white) for decorating
Method:
Mix all dry ingredients well, add butter, ginger, vanilla and egg yolks. Make a soft dough. Using food processor is OK. Divide into 2, and make square logs. Wrap with paper/wrap and refrigerate. When hard enough, cut into 3-5 mm pieces. Bake over silicon paper 8-10 min on 180*C.
Melt chocolate and decorate top of biscuits, when slightly cooled.
Last for 4 weeks in cool, dry spot.

  1. Nikako da ih napravim i sve tražim one limene kalupe u obliku čovečuljka ali ih nema. Kolačić na izgled nije ništa naročito, ali im se ne može odoleti.
