Bake mum’s day this Mother’s Day (11 May) with a CWA member approved Ginger Kisses recipe. Thank you to three badge show judge, Jean Miles, who has generously shared this recipe with The Tassie Farm. You can also make a Mother’s Day card this year with an illustration from our children’s book Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/higgledypiggledyfarm

Ingredients:
3 oz (85g) butter
3 oz (85g) caster sugar
1 egg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp teaspoon ginger
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp ground ginger
8 oz (225g) self raising flour

Method:
Cream butter and sugar, add egg and sifted dry ingredients. Roll into balls and press with a fork like you do Yo Yo’s Cook 10 minutes in a moderate (150 C) oven. When cool join with icing.
Jean normally puts some condensed milk in the icing to keep the icing soft if she wants to keep them a while.

Jean’s Tips: “Not many people make ginger biscuits these days but this is a nice recipe.
I sometimes put a little ginger in the icing. These can be joined like Yo Yo’s or left plain.
Also I like to put a little glace ginger on top of a single biscuit. I have also put them through the biscuit forcer.”

Congratulations to all the Clever Hens at CWA Victoria.
