Bondi Chai Crusted Ginger Spice Biscuits

For all our fans who love to bake cookies here is a recipe for you to try.

Kirsti from the Harris Farm Markets Food Crew put a recipe together for Bondi Chai Crusted Ginger Spice Biscuits which she says "flew" out the door at her instore demonstrations.

2 tsp Bondi Chai, 1tsp ground ginger, 1/2 Cup butter (softened), 1 Cup raw sugar, 1 1/2 Cups plain four, 1 egg.

Cream butter and sugar, fold in egg and ground ginger. Add flour and form into a firm dough. Roll into a log and roll in the Bondi Chai powder. Cover with cling film and chill the cookie dough for 20 minutes. Slice off biscuits and cook for 10-15 minutes.

Kirsti tells me the Chai Crust also works well with plain biscuits.

If you've got any favourite Bondi Chai recipes tell us what they are so we can share them.

Rush in now to Dijon Foods in Caringbah, Fita Fruit in Turramurra, Fruitezy Chatswood, Norton Street Grocer (Leichhardt and Bondi Junction) and Paradise Fruitland (Waitara/East Lindfield).
