My Mother use to bake loads of biscuits for December holidays. She baked hertzoggies, jam tartlets, date balls, soetkoekies, coffee biscuits and much more. With the exception of ginger biscuits, she hardly ever made any spicy biscuits.
My MIL, on the other hand, only made spicy biscuits. She is an early riser and would get up at four in the morning to start baking during December. I can so well remember Christmas holidays that we spent on the farm and the spicy smell, early in the mornings when I would wake up. Unfortunately my family do not like spicy biscuits, so I only bake ginger biscuits and this Danish shortbread that contains a hint of cinnamon.
