Melting Moments

I love to whip up quick, sweet treats to enjoy after dinner or just when I’m in need of a sugar boost. This recipe for melting moments is super speedy, easy and the outcome is always perfect. Try mix things up a bit by adding some cocoa to the biscuit mixture or substitute the lemon juice in the filling for 2 teaspoons of water and your choice of essence (strawberry, passionfruit….).

These biscuits are very more-ish and my bet is you’ll demolish them within a few days.

Ingredients:

Biscuits:

  • 125g butter (at room temp)
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/3 cup custard powder
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar

Butter filling:

  • 60g butter (at room temp)
  • 2/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 160Β°C and like an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Beat the butter with an electric mixer until it is pale and creamy.
  3. Add the flour, custard powder and icing sugar and combine using a wooden spoon.
  4. Roll spoonfills of the mixture (teaspoons or tablespoons depending on what size you require!) into balls and place about 3cm apart on your baking tray. Use a fork to flatten the biscuits slightly.
  5. Bake for 15 or until just cooked.
  6. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. To make the icing, beat the butter and icing sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  8. Add the lemon juice and beat until well combined and a spreadable consistency is reached.
  9. Spread (or be fancy and pipe!) the filling onto the bottom of one biscuit and gently sandwich another biscuit on top.
