    1 3/4  cups          flour
    2      teaspoons     double-acting baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      baking soda
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/2  cup           cold unsalted butter -- cut into bits
      1/4  pound         piece of gingerroot, peeled & chopped
                         press through a garlic press to make 1/4 c -- puree &

      1/2  cup           firmly packed brown sugar
    1      cup           walnuts -- finely chopped

 Into a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  Add the butter and blend the mixture until it resembles meal.  Stir in the
 ginger puree and juice, the brown sugar and the walnuts.  Add the milk and
 stir until it just forms a soft sticky dough.  Drop the dough by rounded
 tablespoons onto an unbuttered baking sheet and bake the biscuits in the
 middle of a preheated 425 oven for 15 to 17 minutes, or until they are
 golden.  Makes about 18 biscuits.
