Recipe by Perfect Pixie
I made these just now and are absolutely brilliant, mine didn't turn out looking like something you would usually get, but that is purely because I am messy and still learning (also I didn't realise the marshmallow fluff I used would rise so well, LOL!!!) but truly great, so many different fillings you can invent yourself or follow my lead
- 100 g flour, sifted
- 50 g butter
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons strawberry jam (or blueberry, blackberry, any jam you like really)
- 1 tablespoon white marshmallow cream, with
- 1 tablespoon pink marshmallow cream (give a marbled affect)
- 2 marshmallows, cut up with
- chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons jelly, then spread top with
- peanut butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- candy sprinkles
- food coloring
- cinnamon, plus
- brown sugar, works well
