Lemon and Ginger Wafers

These crisp lemon and ginger wafers are a tried and tested pairing of flavours. The ginger gives a subtle spicy heat to the fresh, bright tang of lemon. Loosely based on a recipe in ‘Scandalicious Baking’ these are really rather nice with a cup of tea or coffee. Also, as an added bonus, they keep brilliantly for up to 2 weeks.

Lemon and Ginger Wafers (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)
