From a cookbook hand written by Rom’s mother, Dorothy Bennett. Over the years other recipes were added. Deirdre McPharlan worked with Rom at the national library and was a dear friend. It could be her hand.
The very first recipe in a cookbook hand written by Rom’s mother, Dorothy Bennett.
These can be cut into different shaped biscuits and used as Christmas tree decorations. To do this, cut a hole in the baked biscuits while they are still hot. Leave to cool on a wire rack. When cool, thread through green and red ribbons and tie on to the Christmas tree.

To this day I have no idea how these bite sized loaves of ginger wonderfulness keep in the cupboard. Rom had to fight us back just to allow them to cool from the oven. Personally I think they are at their best steaming and hot from the oven with a dob of butter, or raspberry jam, or icecream melting over the moist interior.
