My Mummy pleaded with me to make these, her grandma used to make them and she hadn't had them in so long. I took one each for my neighbour and her daughter and they loved them, took them to school and my friends demolished them and it was a fight over the last one. These are a true kiwi recipe, out of the Edmonds cookbook
- 175 g butter
- 1⁄4 cup icing sugar
- 3 drops vanilla essence (few drops)
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄4 cup custard powder
- 50 g butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup icing sugar
- 2 tablespoons custard powder
- pre heat oven to 180 degrees C.
- cream butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy.
- add essence.
- sift flour and custard powder together, fold into creamed mixture.
- roll teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls.
- place on oven tray, gently flatten with a floured fork (not to hard, you still want a thick cookie and it does not rise when baking).
- bake for 15-20 minutes, when cold sandwich together in pairs with butter filling.
- to make butter filling:.
- beat all ingredients until well combined.
These are great! So easy to make - I had very very soft butter which made it easier to mix. Yummo! Will need to go for a long run now to work them off!!
This was a good recipe to make with my 7 year old. I helped by providing extra muscle as the dough must be creamed properly. Well worth the effort.
