lovely biscuits will be making as gifts x-08 Dec 2011

by AKBTSANG

This recipe is more like a gingersnaps recipe rather than a soft and/or chewy gingerbread people recipe. However, they were really tasty and worked well with cutouts.The icing recipe worked very well. We added food coloring and it was great!-01 Jan 2002

by Cathy

These were wonderful. My son says they are nice and moist. The dough did spread when baking, my people looked very fat, but they tasted great.-08 Dec 2002

Perfect gingerbread biscuits

Makes about 30 biscuits depending on size

340g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1½ tsp grated nutmeg
1½ tsp ground cloves
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tsp ground ginger
225g unsalted butter, softened
340g soft brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
75g crystallised ginger, finely chopped
225g icing sugar, optional
Hundreds and thousands, optional

1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and spices together into a mixing bowl.

2. Beat together the butter and sugar, and then add the egg, beating it in gradually, so the mixture doesn't curdle. Stir into the flour to make a dough, and then mix in the crystallised ginger.

3. Put the dough between two sheets of clingfilm, and roll out to the thickness of a £1 coin. Refrigerate for half an hour. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

4. Cut out the biscuits, and put on a greased baking tray. Cook for about 10 minutes, and, when straight out of the oven, poke a hole in each and allow to cool on a rack before threading a ribbon through.

5. Decorate with writing icing, or sift the icing sugar, and then mix to a stiff consistency with boiling water. Brush over the cooled biscuits, and decorate with hundreds and thousands while still wet.

    The Best Ginger Cookies Ever

    I take my ginger cookies very seriously. So when I say that these are the “best ginger cookies ever”, you should regard that as the highest praise. Seriously, these are the best ginger cookies I have ever put in my mouth. These ginger cookies are the perfect texture. Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Not too sweet. Not too spicy. It might seem weird that I wanted to bake or even eat a cookie after the holidays, but I was flipping through the January issue of Sunset and the teaser for the recipe was talking about how they didn’t really want to include this recipe in the issue, but they were so good the had to be added. I have to agree 100%.

    1/2 cup chopped crystallized ginger
    3/4 cup sugar
    6 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
    1/4 cup molasses
    1 egg
    2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    Sanding sugar (optional)

    Add the crystallized ginger and 1/3 cup sugar to a food processor (you could use a blender for this step if you don’t have a food processor). Pulse until finely ground. Pour into a bowl.

    Add the butter and 1/3 cup sugar to the food processor. (I don’t wash out the bowl.) Whirl until light and fluffy.

    Whirl until light and fluffy.

    Add the ginger mixture, molasses, and egg. Run until smooth.

    In a bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

    Add the flour mixture to the food processor and run until the dough comes together. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for one hour.

    Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and coat in sugar. I used a mixture of regular sugar and sanding sugar. Place the balls 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets. I got about 36 cookies out of this.

    Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on a rack.

    This recipe is from the January 2014 issue of Sunset magazine.


    The Secrets to My Biscuits Recipe

    • My first secret to making the Best-Ever Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe is in how you add the butter. All biscuit recipes require cutting cold butter into the flour to form a sandy texture. While this is usually done by hand, I do it by grating in frozen butter with a box grater. This ensures the butter is evenly distributed and stays cold in the dough.
    • The second secret to my Best-Ever Biscuits Recipe is in the folding of the dough. After I bring the dough together and roll it out, I fold it in thirds, like a letter, then re-roll. This creates all those lovely layers of flaky dough, which for me, is an absolute biscuit requirement. After this, I cut out the biscuits using Sweet Creations Nested Round Cutters for the perfect shape and depth.
    • Tip!When you go to cut out your biscuits, do not press and turn with the cutter! That will create an wonky biscuit. Make sure you press, then pull back straight up for the perfect biscuit shapes.
    • Tip! When applying the egg wash to the top of the biscuits to get that amazing golden-brown, only apply the egg wash to the TOP of the biscuit! Do not let it run down the sides, as this will pull down the sides, also leading to an uneven look.

    Bake for just 25 minutes in a hot oven and prepare for the oohs and aahs as the heavenly smell wafts around your kitchen. When baked they will be tall and golden on the outside, with a light, fluffy interior. Once you make my Best-Ever Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe from scratch you will not go back to store bought. These will surely become one of your favorite savory things to bake and a family favorite.

    Best-Ever Homemade Biscuits

    A warm biscuit straight from the oven brings me back to my childhood and my grandma's homemade blackberry jam. She made the best biscuits and taught me that a few simple ingredients, when carefully mixed together create a soft, pillowy roll of comfort. Biscuits can take on very different meanings in different parts of the world. In North America, they are meant to be a flaky and soft leavened quick bread. Ideally they should have tender flaky layers and an extra buttery taste. An easier alternative to dinner rolls and equally good at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    1. Make sure your butter is cold.

    As in FROZEN cold. About 30 minutes before you plan to make your biscuits pop a stick of butter in the freezer. For the perfect biscuit texture we grate our butter into the flour. (Yes, with a cheese grater!) Extra cold butter will ensure it doesn't melt while you work the dough with your hand. And grating the butter will distribute the butter evenly, making lots of little pockets for it to melt while baking. In other words: It guarantees extra fluffy biscuits.

    2. Don't be afraid to add more buttermilk.

    Or less for that matter. A good biscuit maker is someone that can tell what the dough needs past what the recipe says. Unless you weigh out your flour each time, your amount will always vary slightly. Add the buttermilk slowly so that you know if your dough is becoming too wet. If you feel it's a little too dry add about 1 tablespoon of buttermilk at a time until it feels right. If you've already added all of your buttermilk and it's too sticky add just a bit more flour until the dough is easy to work with. A biscuit dough will be a little drier than you expect. Pockets of dryness while folding are fine. as long as the dough is holding together nicely.

    3. Don't overwork the flour.

    I'm sure you've heard this one before but it's still just as important. The more the flour gets mixed and worked, the more gluten develops. And over-activated gluten=tough and gummy baked goods&mdashthe complete opposite of what we are going for here. To avoid this problem, you're to pat your dough a lot while making biscuits. Once you feel the buttermilk is mixed in, use your hands to pat the dough into a rectangle. Your hands will be a much better guide than a spoon or any other tool. When folding your dough, don't be too tough when flattening it back together. Imperfection is beauty here.

    4. Don't twist your biscuit cutter.

    This is a simple yet fatal mistake. When using a cookie or biscuit cutter you're likely to naturally twist the cutter to make sure it cuts through the dough all of the way. Don't! Twisting the cutter causes the dough to pinch together and you won't get a proper rise on your biscuits. Instead, punch straight down and lift. If a few little strands are still connected, take a pairing knife or kitchen scissors and cut them loose. And flouring your biscuit cutter should prevent sticking!

    Storing Biscuits

    Like most baked goods, these biscuits are best day of and fresh out of the oven. They will keep in an airtight container for a couple of days. Re-toast them in the oven for a few minutes to help make them warm and soft again! These also freeze well after being baked. Just thaw out in a 350° for several minutes until warm all the way through for a fresh tasting and buttery biscuit!
