How to Make Grantham Gingerbreads with Lemon Zest
- Cream sugar and butter together until light and fluffy, gradually add the beaten egg and zest from one lemon. mix well.
- Sift the flour and ginger together and add gradually to the Sugar, Butter, Lemon Zest and Egg mixture. This will form a stiff dough.
- Break off pieces about the size of a walnut and place on a greased baking sheet. leaving space between them as they will spread.
- When cooked in about 40-45 minutes put them on a wire rack to cool- Enjoy with a cup of your favorite tea!!
