These biscuits are reasonably plain, that is, they are not too sweet, but they have a short-texture with just a hint of Buderim Ginger Naked Ginger finished with a glistening crown of Buderim Ginger Ginger Lemon & Lime Marmalade.

Ingredients (makes 30 biscuits)

  • 200g butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup pure icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 60g Buderim Ginger Naked Ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached or regular plain flour
  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1/4 cup custard powder
  • 1/3 cup Buderim Ginger Ginger Lemon & Lime Marmalade

Method

  1. Preheat oven to moderately hot [190°C].
  2. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until pale in colour and creamy.
  3. Add chopped Buderim Ginger Naked Ginger and beat a further 1 minute.
  4. Sift flour, cornflour and custard powder together. Add to creamed butter mixture beat carefully at this point as mixture will resemble coarse breadcrumbs. Using fingertips to gently knead dough into a ball.
  5. Divide mixture into 30 even portions, form into balls and place onto a non stick baking paper lined baking tray about 5mm a part. Using a small bottle top about 22 to 25mm diameter [I used a lidded vanilla bottle up-side down], press down gently, but firm creating a reasonably deep indentation; fill each indentation with a teaspoonful of Ginger Lemon & Lime Marmalade.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes turning tray around if necessary half way through baking, until firm and a light brown in colour.
  7. Remove from oven, cool on tray on a wire rack for about 5 minutes then transfer to wire cake rack to finish cooling. Immediately cooled, store in airtight container.

Notes... You can substitute Buderim Ginger Ginger Lemon & Lime Marmalade with Buderim Ginger Original Ginger Marmalade. A standard Australian Metric 250mL cup & 20mL tablespoon measuring sets are used. New Zealand Metric tablespoon measure = 15mL or 3 teaspoons

  • I can’t even imagine what a wonderful smell there must be in the kitchen once they are cooked!!

  • This is a nice combination of adult flavours. Sometimes I tire of baking to my children’s tastes.

  • Oh yum. My kids aren’t a fan of marmalade but I love the Budgerim marmalades. Haven’t seen the ginger lemon and lime one so will be on the look out for it next time I’m in the shops.

  • Some, especially young children may not like ginger. You could perhaps subsititute it with orange or lemon…or even another fruit. A lot don’t particularly like lime either. You could perhaps use a little powdered ginger in the biscuit mixture. That way you can adjust it to your taste.


    • That is a great Idea to substitute with another fruit as my girls are not really fond of ginger either.
