Take a look at that picture and tell me you don’t want to take just 10 minutes to curl up on the sofa with a cuppa & one of these beauties… Yep, thought so! These classic Lemon Melting Moments biscuits really do melt in the mouth & with the extra lemony kick you’ll be reaching for seconds!

(Recipe adapted from Donna Hay.)

Makes approx 12 – 15

For the Biscuits

  • 260g Unsalted Butter, Room Temp
  • 60g Icing Sugar
  • 1.5tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 50g Corn Flour

 

For the Filling

  • 90g Unsalted Butter, Room Temp
  • 240g Icing Sugar
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • 1 tbsp Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

 

Lemon Melting Moments Recipe

Preheat your oven to 190°C/Fan 180°C & Line a large baking sheet with baking paper or a baking mat.

Either using an electric stand mixer with the beater attachment or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk, cream together the butter, icing sugar & vanilla extract for about 5 minutes or until light & fluffy.

Sift in the plain flour & corn flour and beat until a dough forms.

Take tablespoon sized scoops of dough & roll into balls. Place them onto the prepared baking sheet spaced approx 2 – 3cm apart.

Then take a fork, lightly dust it in flour and press the tops of the dough balls down to flatten & create a pattern.

Bake in the preheated oven for 8 – 10 minutes until the edges are turning golden.

Meanwhile, let’s make the filling.

Again, either using an electric stand mixer with the beater attachment or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk, beat together the butter, icing sugar, lemon zest & lemon juice until light and fluffy. (At least 5 minutes.) You may need to scrape the bowl down once or twice to make sure it’s all mixed in well.

When the biscuits are cooked, allow to cool for a few minutes on the tray then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before filling.

When they’re cooled, take heaped teaspoons of the filling and ‘dollop’ (yes that’s a technical term) them onto half of the biscuits.

Pair a biscuit with filling with a plain one and gently press together to make a ‘sandwich.’

If you really want to be picky, you could pipe the filling in but I quite like the more rustic approach. It’s certainly more time efficient when you have an 11 month old opening every cupboard & drawer in the kitchen!

I don’t know about you but I could definitely take time out my day to have some Lemon Melting Moments. They’re pretty darn quick to make and pretty darn quick to disappear! The biscuit is so crumbly & literally melts away and the lemon filling has a wonderful kick & sweetness that makes you want to keep reaching for another! Store in an airtight container (metal is best) for up to 5 days.

I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time!
