Every year I bake 'Christmas cards' instead of writing them. I think it's more fun. Also more delicious. And delicious is important. This year I'm doing ginger biscuits for cards (and for the Guides bake sale). I got the recipe from Nanny and it's called Elizabeth's ginger biscuits as she got it from someone called Elizabeth (?).
Anyway, I took my recipe to the supermarket, picked up all the ingredients, got home and couldn't find the recipe. Even now it's probably floating around the street, waiting to be found by a passing stranger who will take it home, make biscuits and have their own Christmas miracle. However, this didn't help me. I rang Nanny but she was down the church decorating Christmas trees. This was annoying, but Christmassy. When she got back though, she was able to read her copy of the recipe to me. Fortunately she hadn't foolishly dropped hers in the street. So everyone will get the biscuits.
Except my form who will get Rocky Road. But that's another story.
Oooh, and there will eventually be little sugar stars.
P.S. Ginger is one of those delicious Christmassy flavours isn't it? If you've never made rocky road with ginger nut biscuits, you have been missing out. Nuff said.
