I bet you’re going to let out a sweet “sigh”, too when they melt in your mouth!
I got the Donna Hay ” Modern Classics2 ” Baking Book for Christmas. When I flipped through the sides, these Cookies cached my eye and I knew I couldn’t resist very long to make them. They are wonderful and really not difficult to make. You could even leave the Butter Cream out, I am sure they will be as delicious and probably not as sweet. They remind me of some German classic Butter Cookies or Shortbread. The consistency is the same. You take a bite and it just takes you one chew more that they melt.
Melting Moments Sandwich Cookies (by Donna Hay)
- 175g (6oz) butter, softened (I used non dairy margarine)
- 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract ( I used a vanilla butter flavor mix)
- 1 cup flour, sifted
- 1/4 cup cornflour, sifted
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 Celsius). Place the butter, icing sugar and vanilla in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the flour and cornflour until combined.
Place the mixture in a piping bag fitted with a fluted nozzle and pipe 3cm (1in) rounds onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, allowing room for spreading.
Cook for 12-14 minutes or until golden. Cool on tray.
- 1 cup Icing confectioner’s sugar
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
Place the butter, sugar, lemon rind and juice in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until fluffy and creamy. Pipe onto half the cookies and sandwich with the remaining cookies.
Makes about 16.
I can hear my sweet tooth fairy sing…
