I've made these thelastmouthful.wordpress.com/2012/02/07/stem-ginger-shortbread/ loads of times and they're delicious. Also work well with chocolate chunks and hazelnuts.

Where I grew up "refrigerator biscuits" would mean that thing where you crush bought biscuits and mix them with melted butter and chocolate and "other stuff" and then put them in the fridge to set.
