melting moments.

these biscuits literally melt in your mouth. the passionfruit filling makes this afternoon treat (or post brekkie snack if you live in my house) irresistible and the texture is like biting into pure joy. super easy to make and the gluten free version is also a winner. enjoy!


Passionfruit filling

Step 1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper

Step 2. Using an electric mixer, cream butter, vanilla and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Sift flours over butter mixture. Beat on low speed until a soft dough forms.

Step 3. Roll heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture into small balls. Place on trays. Using a fork dipped in flour, lightly flatten each biscuit until 1cm thick. Bake for 15 minutes or until firm. Cool on trays for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4. Make passionfruit filling: Using an electric stand/hand mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy. Stir in passionfruit pulp and icing sugar.

Step 5. Spread flat side of 1 biscuit with 1 teaspoon filling. Top with another biscuit. Repeat with remaining biscuits and filling. Dust with icing sugar and serve with a cup of tea!

These look beautiful! I made something similar a couple of years ago, although I think the biscuits had lemon zest in them too, and they were so good! Passionfruit is such a sunshine flavour.
