skimmie: Great Scott!
You're on Santa's Nice list! There is a present in your stocking.
Not only did I get a lovely gift in my stocking, our resident Santas picked the perfect choice from the wishlist.
I feel young again. Christmas Day present-under-the-tree young.
Such generosity deserves yet another recipe, so I raided the "box". Gingernut Bites
90g butter, chopped
2 tablespoons (20mls ea) golden syrup
1/2 cup (125ml) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon (5ml) vanilla essence
250g gingernut biscuits (cookies), crushed
1/2 cup (125ml) sultanas (small ones preferable)
1 cup (250ml) desiccated coconut (approximately)
Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add golden syrup and condensed milk. Stir in essence, biscuit crumbs and sultanas over medium heat until well combined. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature, then roll heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture into small balls. Toss in coconut until coated, then refrigerate until firm. (Makes 50 depending on size, can be made up to 3 days ahead. Keep covered in refrigerator. Unsuitable to freeze).
