Like fresh baked biscuits but haven't the time to cook?
Although I have lived in Brisbane for nearly twenty five years my status remains as Mexican, as in "from south of the border".
As both The Squeeze and I are Mexicans we enjoy searching for non-perishable food items bearing Product of Queensland to send to those poor sods,genetically connected, and still living in the southern states. Jars of Rosella Jam, Ice Cream Toppings made from Macadamia Nuts, Ginger Chocolates from Yandina, and anything with a hint of Rum from Bundaberg make great gifts. We have found that the recipients have always enjoyed receiving these goods, sharing them with friends.
At a local market, we even stumbled across a range of homemade biscuits from "Jen's Kitchen" that were made locally. Best Melting Moments I have ever eaten! So good that I had a tendency to buy a pack for myself as well as for the relatives, and would end up eating both packets. I can't be certain that any Melting Moments actually made a gift box that travelled south.
Absolutely gobsmacked to stumble upon Jennifer's Kitchen, in a shopping centre in Panorama Drive, Thornlands, in the heart of Brisbane's Redland City. We're talking the actual engine room with ovens, rolling pins, and a flour dusted Jen.
Only a small retail outlet there is most certainly a huge range of baked treats on offer, as well as an extensive line of Gluten Free products. There are also Gluten Free Dips if you are in entertaining mode.
Jen's baked treats are available from some local retail outlets, though I think it is much more fun to go to the source. That way, you can also enjoy a coffee at Jen's at the same time!
This is a family owned and operated business with a good product: biscuits that don't have that mass produced, boring flavour. Yes, okay, I admit to a weakness for the Anzac Biscuits too. These made the journey south to Tasmania and were much enjoyed by a dear lady in her nineties, who used to cook batches of bikkies for shearers in a wood stove. You know, one of those cooks that if the tucker wasn't up to scratch the shearers would walk off the job.
