    I'mPat's Note:

    This is from the Australian Masterchef site but I have omitted the Raspberry jam as my DH does not like jam in his melting moments and traditionally it was never in the originals. Times at this moment are estimated as I have not had the time to make as is serving size but think 6 biscuits/cookies would be right. Have since made these and got 6 biscuits/cookies (12 halves and joined together to make 6). The DH found these to be very sweet and has suggested it may be better to make them smaller (20 gram instead of 40) therefore getting 12 melting moments but cooking time would need to be adjusted and I think 8 to 10 minutes would do it - will give a try in a couple of weeks and report back.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 180C fan forced and line two oven trays with baking paper.

    8. 8
      Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a small star (I just spread the mix on with a knife and consequently had some left over even though I put a fairly thick layer on).
    9. 9
      To assemble, pipe buttercream in a circle onto the base of one half and then gently press the other half of onto the cream to make a full biscuit and to form a melting moment.

      A easy recipe to do ! I do have One of my tip's I do is to use a spoon or your finger and push in the middle of the ball to make an indention to place the icing in. Truely melt in your mouth. I iced with a simple powdered sugar icing flavored with vanilla and almond. I love these cookies and your icing is good too. they seem so light. I Will definately be make again.
