Melting Moments

I adore these biscuits and have been making them with my mum since I was a child. They are so deliciously soft and melt in the mouth and perfect for afternoon tea,
This recipe I have perfected over the years from her recipe.

250g butter
1/3 cup icing sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup custard powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbl cornflour

100g butter
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
zest of half a lemon (I use a microplaner to get a small thin zest)
juice of one medium lemon

Beat the butter and sugar together till its light and fluffy, reduce mixer to medium speed and add vanilla essence, sifted flours and powder.  When all combined put into a piping bag with a star nozzle and pipe small cookies or alternatively roll out little balls and press lightly with a floured fork.

Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees) for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden,
Let cool

Filling method:
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add the juice and zest and mix until combined.
Pipe onto one side of a cookie and sandwich another cookie of similar size on the top.

Store in an airtight container out of the fridge for around 4 days.

Enjoy :)
