This is a stunning recipe, you will adore these kisses, they may take some practice to perfect but they are well worth it. I look forward to making these again soon and will post the photo when I do. Meanwhile here is a photo I lifted from the net just to show you the finished product.

Ingredients

3 oz. plain flour

3 eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
pinch salt

Method

Separate the egg yolks from the whites
Beat the whites until stiff peaks form and add salt
Add sugar slowly a bit at a time
Sift flour, corn flour, and baking powder together and fold into the egg white mix
Line a tray with non stick baking paper
Put a teaspoon of the mix on the tray so that it forms a small circle
Leave room between the kisses so they can expand

Cool on a wire rack
When cooled sandwich together with cream and jam, dust the tops with icing sugar
