I love passionfruit, the flavour is so intense!
Melting moments [or, yo-yo’s if you are from New Zealand!] are usually made with lemon for a subtle citrus flavour, but the passionfruit takes these treats to a whole other level of deliciousness.
Try your best to not eat them all ….and share ‘some’ with your family and friends 🙂
250g unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup pure icing sugar, sifted
2 cups plain flour
1/3 cup cornflour
Passionfruit icing, for filling
60g butter, softened
1 large passionfruit
1 cup pure icing sugar, sifted
Preheat oven to 160°C.
Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
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.
Roll heaped teaspoonful 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.
Make passionfruit filling…
Using an electric mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy, stir in passionfruit pulp and icing sugar.
Spread flat side of 1 biscuit with 1 teaspoon filling. Top with another biscuit.
Repeat with remaining biscuits and filling.
