Melting Moments

Yesterday, my husband suggested I bake "something yummy" for afternoon tea. He suggests this every weekend and usually I'll whip up a batch of scones or a tea cake. He is a huge biscuit lover, so this time, I decided to make our afternoon tea a little, extra special with some delicious, Melting Moments:
These beautiful buttery biscuits, sandwiched with jam and vanilla buttercream are a favorite in our house. As the name suggests, they have a delicious, soft, crumbly shortbread like texture, which totally melts in your mouth.
You may call these Yo-Yo biscuits, as they are made using custard powder but the recipe I originally used (I think it came from the reality cooking show, Masterchef) refers to them as Melting Moments. I have baked these quite a few times now and I prefer to use my own buttercream recipe and fill them with a store brought blackberry jam because that's our favorite.
They are quite large and the recipe yields only six completed biscuits but they are quick and easy to make, easy clean up and are totally delicious.
They are perfect for afternoon tea and they look so pretty on the table. (Poor hubby was in absolute torture waiting for me to take some photos to share with you, before I allowed him to eat one).
My advice is to be generous with the buttercream and jam because there is a lot of biscuit and make sure you give them a lovely dusting of icing sugar before serving, to make them pretty.
If you are looking for "something yummy" to make for afternoon tea, then give these biscuits a try. You can download the recipe HERE or right click on the picture below and save to your computer:
I hope you enjoy these morsels of deliciousness. Hubby was thrilled and yesterdays afternoon tea was another of those special family moments, filled with chatter. laughter and melt in your mouth goodness :)
Happy baking :)
