Melting moments

 Today I wanted something easy but yet delicious. My first encounter with these beauties was when we use to live in Australia. They were everywhere.They are a classic cookie in the anglo saxon part of the world. I was easily swayed and need no introduction. It was love at first sight. These cookies are the most crumbly, buttery, and delicious cookies ever. So easy to make so there is no reason not to try this for your afternoon tea today. I found my recipe here.


INGREDIENTS

  • 125g butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (115g) plain flour
  • 1/4 cup (45g) icing sugar mixture
  • 1/3 cup (50g) custard powder
  • 60g butter, softened, extra
  • 2/3 cup (110g) icing sugar mixture, extra
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

How to

  •  1
    Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat butter until pale and creamy. Add the flour, icing sugar and custard powder and use a wooden spoon to stir to combine.
  •  2
    Use your hands to roll teaspoonful of the dough mixture into balls. Place the balls 3cm apart on the lined trays. Use a fork dusted in icing sugar to gently flatten. Bake in preheated oven, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15 minutes or until just cooked through. Remove from oven and set aside for 30 minutes to cool.
  •  3
    Use an electric mixer to beat the extra butter and icing sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add the lemon rind and juice and beat until combined. Spread the butter mixture over the flat side of half the biscuits and sandwich together with remaining biscuits.

Good luck!
