Melting Moments Biscuits/Cookies

Recipe by ImPat
READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat oven to 180C fan forced and line two oven trays with baking paper.
  • For biscuits, cream butter and for two minutes in an electric mixer with paddle attachment and then add icing sugar and custard powder and mix until combines.
  • Sift the baking powder and flour together and then add to the dough and mix well.
  • Roll dough into 40 grams balls, place on the baking paper lined trays and press each ball with a fork to leave an indent.
  • Bake biscuits for 15 minutes or until light golden.
  • Stand trays for 5 minutes to cool and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • For buttercream - whisk butter and vanilla until smooth and the add icing sugar and beat until mixture forms a paste, the consistency is thick icing.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Dust with icing sugar just before serving.
