Ingredients
Melting Moments
Lemon Butter Icing
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 150Âșc and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Over the years, I've made Melting Moments in a variety of kitchens with varying degrees of modern appliances. In fact, my earliest Melting Moments were all mixed by wooden spoon in a ceramic bowl. Not these days though. Now I simply pop the butter, flours and icing sugar into my food processor and mix until it forms a ball. So much easier! But if you don't have a food processor you can still use a mixer or spoon, it will just take longer.
  3. Roll tsp sized amounts of the mixture into balls and place onto the baking tray. Using a fork that has been dipped in flour, flatten the balls slightly.
  4. *Optional. At this point, you can place the tray into the fridge for 10-15 minutes before baking. This will firm up the mixture and reduce the amount of spreading whilst the Melting Moments Bake.
  5. Bake in a slow oven for 10-15 minutes. You should be able to smell the biscuits when they are done, and you will see a slightly golden colour around the base. Be careful not to overcook them which can happen very quickly.
  6. Sandwich together in pairs using Lemon Butter Icing.
Lemon Butter Icing
  1. Mix the butter, icing sugar and lemon juice together until light and fluffy (I once again used my food processor for this - hey it was already dirty anyway...).
  2. Place a large dollop of icing onto the base of a biscuit and spread it around, before placing another biscuit on top.
