Biscuits

This is one of my favorite recipe’s for biscuits.  Everyone loves them and you can make a double batch put the extra frozen formed dough in the freezer and pull them out when you want to bake off a few.

Yoyo Biscuits
185 grams butter, softened
60 grams icing sugar, sifted
185 grams plain flour, sifted
60 grams custard powder, sifted
Icing

2 Tbs butter, softened

4 Tbs icing sugar, sifted

few drops vanilla essence

1 large passionfruit, pulped

1 Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. Line a biscuit tray with baking paper.

2 Cream butter and icing sugar then stir in sifted flour and custard powder. Scoop out the mixture with a teaspoon and roll in into walnut-sized small balls and place on the biscuit tray. With a fork gently press down on each ball so the prongs leave indentations.

3 Bake for about 10mins. Don’t let biscuits brown, as they will be overcooked. Allow to cool.

4 To make the icing: mix all icing ingredients together, adjust for taste or consistency. Ice the bottom of one biscuits and sandwich two biscuits together to serve.

100g castor sugar

1 egg

1tsp vanilla essence

300g SR flour

Almonds, walnuts, jam, chocolate drops, to decorate (optional)

AccessoriesPreparation

Preheat oven to 180ºC. Line a baking tray with paper and set aside.

Place butter into TM bowl and cook for 20 minutes at Varoma temperature on speed 1.

Cool slightly.

Add sugar and egg and beat together for 20 seconds on speed 4.

Add vanilla and flour and with dial set to closed lid position, mix for 5 seconds on Interval speed.

Use damp hands to roll small balls of dough and place onto prepared tray. Press nut (if using) into center of each ball and bake 5-7 minutes until golden.

These have been rolled out and all different cookie cutters used.  I like the stacked ones down the bottom, I think you could call it just having one cookie, that’s not bad is it?
