Orange & Candied Ginger Biscuit – Biscuit à l’orange & au gingembre confit

I  was intrigued by this recipe with orange & candied ginger .  Glad that I've tried it & the end result  was good . Rich buttery citrus cookies that reminded of  X'mas .  LOL   I've used biscuit piping set to make this cookies but you can use cookie cutter as well .
