Make your own edible place-name cards
These dark, richly spiced Scandinavian ginger biscuits may take a little longer to prepare than other biscuit recipes, but the wait is well worth it. They not only make fun place-name cards with your guests initials or names written on in white icing, they are also a delicious combination of spicy, crunchy, sweetness. Make any extra dough into smaller biscuit shapes to be eaten another time.
