Ginger kisses

Tonight is the final of a NZ show called Chelsea hottest home baker. Week after week we have been watching decadent baked treats being churned out. Watching it just makes me salivate and gives me the itch to bake something. So almost every Thursday night i find myself in the kitchen whipping up something delicious to share with family and friends. Tonight i decided to make an old favourite from my childhood, ginger kisses.

 Creaming together butter and sugar

 Add in dry ingredients

 Small spoonfuls on the tray

 Deliciously baked biscuits

Sandwiched together with butter cream.

These are yummy biscuits with a soft, slightly chewy texture but nowhere near gingery enough for me. They are more like a nice filled biscuit than a ginger. Next time i make this i will be adding a lot more ginger, but it was a good start.

Ginger kisses

125g butter
1/2C sugar
1 egg
1t golden syrup
1/2 t ginger ( next time i will add 2 t )
1C flour
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking powder
1/2t baking soda dissolved in 1 t hot water

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and golden syrup, mix well. Then add in dry ingredients and stir.
Take small spoonfuls of the mixture, roll into balls and place on tray well spaced.
Bake in a moderate until golden, about 10mins.
Allow to cool and sandwich together with butter cream icing.

Enjoy with a hot cuppa.
