Spices are all around at this time of the year. I don’t really do spices but I wanted to try something new. I had some mascarpone that I bought for a Halloween recipe that I didn’t make in the end so I needed to use it up before it went out of date.
Ginger is a very popular flavour in biscuits and these cookies are full of ginger flavour. These cookies are super chewy on the inside but the demerara sugar gives a nice little crunch to the outside of the biscuits and adds a little extra flavour.
The lemon works really well with these cookies, takes the edge of the ginger and adds a zing to the cookies. You can add as much lemon curd you like to the mascarpone or if your not into a lemon flavour then you could use strawberry jam or something similar.
These cookies are the perfect combination of spice and zing. The filling is not necessarily needed with the cookies and you could have these on their own.
