Baileys Ginger Kisses

This recipe comes from my friend Emma and it is literally going to change your life, forever. You will never be the same and no other biscuit is ever going to taste as good- all those other biscuits in the world will actually be a little disappointing after wolfing through a batch of these. They even smell fabulous, the kind of smell you can taste in the air before you get the pleasure of actually eating them. These really are one of the best recipe finds of the year, so yummy and easy to make- thanks Em!

  • 40g unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten 
  • 1 Tblsp golden syrup
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 
  • 2 cups flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 150g unsalted butter, softened
  • 300g icing sugar
  • 1 Tblsp baileys Irish cream
Preheat oven to 190°C on fan bake. Grease and line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Cream butter and sugar in electric mixer until light and pale. Add golden syrup. In separate bowl, sift all the dry ingredients. Gradually add beaten eggs to butter mixture, alternating with dry ingredients. Mix well to combine.
Roll teaspoons of dough into balls and press down gently onto prepared trays. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden. Cool completely.
For the Irish butter cream, combine the ingredients and mix into a smooth icing. Sandwich together the kisses with the butter cream.

Thanks Em xx
