As a fully fledged convert to the joys of Australian Christmas, making (and eating and sharing) these ginger and tamarind spice cookies has become a much loved holiday tradition. I baked them each year not just because they're delicious, but also because I feel the recipe is a kind of love letter from me to the steamy Queensland climate. The ode is in the way this little ying-yang biccies perfectly combine the bold, warm, festive flavours we all crave this time of year with the brightness and zing of sun-worshiping glacΓ© ginger and tamarind. To me, they are tropical Christmas in snack form.
