These ginger kisses are for my boyfriend. He’s rather partial to them you see and prior to me making these ones he had only ever eaten ginger kisses of the store bought variety. A fact which as a passionate cook and foodie is rather hard to stomach (excuse the pun!). And so we set about trying to create the perfect ginger kiss. We discussed the texture of the sponge biscuit, the level of spiciness and the ingredients which would make up the filling; would it be butter icing, mock cream or a cream cheese variation? We decided that the perfect ginger kiss was more spicy than your average store bought one, perfectly spongy, and lastly sandwiched together with a cream cheese filling scented with a hint of lemon.
And so here is our recipe for ginger kisses. We think they are pretty delicious and hope that you do too!
