Melting moments

Well, the choco buttons didn't last long ... yum! It has been a "I need to bake twice in one week" kind of week. These melting moments taste a lot like shortbread and were so delicious that even our cat helped herself to one - her first and last ever biscuit. (We were not impressed.)

I filled a few with strawberry jam purely for the sake of convenience and we ate the rest of them unfilled but I think they would taste great with butter or lemon flavoured icing.

Melting moments

  • 200 g butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup cornflour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • butter icing or raspberry jam for filling
  1. Cream butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Sift flour, cornflour and baking powder together. Mix into creamed mixture, mixing well.
  3. Roll dough into small balls the size of large marbles and place on a greased oven tray. Flatten slightly with a fork.
  4. Bake at 180°C for 20 minutes or until cooked.
  5. Cool and sandwich two biscuits together with butter icing or raspberry jam. Makes 16.
