Melting Moments

Just like it's name these biscuits just literally  melt- in- your- mouth . These biscuits taste really good and I mean really goooooddd. The biscuits are buttery and fluffy and crumbly and the filling is very fresh and lemony and the best thing is it is really easy to make and looks great too , so here goes...........


125 gms butter softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup icing sugar
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup corn flour

For the filling

45 gms butter
1/4 cup icing sugar
1/4 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp lemon juice


Beat the butter ,vanilla  and the sugar till light and fluffy
Mix the two flours together and add  them to the butter mix in two parts
Roll teaspoonfulls of dough and place them in the baking sheet 1 inch apart .
Lightly pat down the balls with floured fork .
Bake for about 15-20 min in a preheated 160 c oven.
Stand 5 min before lifting onto wire rack to cool
Now make the filling by mixing all the ingredients together in a smooth paste.
Sandwich the biscuits with the filling .
Dust with extra icing sugar before serving if you like.


Unfilled biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for a week .Filled biscuits can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days .
