What You Need

1/2 Cup self-rising flour

1/2 Cup pistachio nuts ( shelled)

1/2 Cup crystallized ginger

2 Eggs (whites only)

3/4 Cup sugar

1 tsp Honey

1 tsp Orange zest ( do not get any of the white when you grate your orange skin)

Mixing bowls

Baking sheets

Nonstick cooking spray

Food Processor

Hand mixer

Wire cooling rack

Before You Start:  Preheat oven to 300° and spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray

Lets Make It! Place flour and nuts into the food processor and pulse about 10 times ( it will look like coarse mealy flour). Pour flour mixture into a bowl and set aside. Add ginger to the food processor and pulse 6-10 times (or until finely minced) add it to the bowl of flour and mix together. Place egg whites in a separate bowl, and beat on high with a hand mixer for about 1-2 minutes ( or more) until soft peaks form. Continue beating at high speed and gradually add the sugar and honey. Continue mixing for  4-5 minutes (or until thick and glossy). Using a spoon or spatula, gently fold into the flour mixture. Drop dough by level tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 18 minutes or until firm. Remove from baking sheets, and cool on a wire rack.

Makes about 2 dozen

*Katies Tid Bits  try using hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, or macadamia

    Hi Katherine,
    I am sure these biscuits taste good. I have eaten several types of ginger biscuits. At our home we put ginger in a number of dishes. It certainly adds to the flavour. Have a good Monday.

    These sounds marvelous! I tried a chocolate-ginger cookie over the weekend which was delicious, too! I like that there’s bits of ginger in this cookie. It will definitely be on my to-try list! :)

    I use ginger in a couple of my Thanksgiving recipes, so I always think about it this time of year! Maybe I will save some for cookies!!

    Unfortunately, with my new eating regime, I can’t eat flour, because I would definitely have made these. They look really scrumptious. I love ginger very much in all forms as well, and with the pistacchio nuts, I bet they are divine!!
