Lemongrass, ginger and sesame biscuits

March 26, 2010

My work colleague Zoe recently gave me some lovely fresh lemongrass, which her dad had brought back from Thailand. Instead of using it in the usual Thai curries, I thought I’d see if I could find a sweet recipe.

I found a number of cakes that had this delicate herb in the list of ingredients, but nothing really grabbed me. Until I spotted this recipe for lemongrass, ginger and sesame biscuits.

Perfect, I thought. Especially as I had a jar of sesame seeds in my cupboard that I wanted to use up. (Don’t you just love it when something crops up like this that conveniently takes care of the dregs of your cupboard?)

Apart from some arm-aching grinding of spices, it was very simple to put these biscuits together, and they really are a taste sensation. Thin, crispy and nice’n’spicy, I’d highly recommend trying them.

    Sounds like a nice combination.

    What a nice mix of spices and I guess you could use lemon zest to replace lemongrass. They do sound lovely

  3. Choclette, yes, I agree, lemon zest would work very well instead. I think they’d be a great thing to have with ice cream, too.
