Melting Moments (Cookies/Biscuits)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by diner524

A recipe I found at All British and am posting for ZWT6. These crisp, crunchy biscuits melt in the mouth—hence their name. A freshly baked batch will soon disappear.

These cookies really did melt in your mouth! I was not crazy about the cornflakes and also tried them in a mold with sprinkled sugar. I liked those better. Very easy and quick cookie to make since they don't have to be refrigerated and sliced, grrrr!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease two baking sheets.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk.
  3. Add the vanilla flavouring, stir in the flour to give a smooth dough and divide into about 24 portions.
  4. Form each piece into a ball and roll in crushed cornflakes.
  5. Place the balls on the baking sheets and bake in the oven at 190°C (375°F) mark 5 for 15 - 20 minutes.
  6. Cool on the baking sheets for a few moments before lifting on to a wire rack.
  8. Instead of cornflakes, use 50 g (2 oz) rolled oats. Press half a glace cherry 8in the centre of each biscuit.
