Vanilla Butter Biscuits

Written By 106505038 18 Apr 2012

The reason these vanilla butter biscuits are a perfect gift - they are simple, pretty and melt in your mouth due to all the butter and cornflour. Traditionally called melting moments - constructed of two biscuits sandwiched together with butter icing, I decided to just keep them simple and dust in icing sugar.

Even if you made a batch and took them to work, I'm pretty sure your colleagues will be delightfully surprised at the delicateness of these sturdy looking darlings.

I cannot forget to mention that these are so EASY to make!


195 g butter, softened
60 g icing sugar (plus extra for dusting), sifted
11/2 tsp vanilla essence
40 g cornflour
210 g plain flour, sifted

Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Line a baking tray with cooking paper

In a bowl beat butter and icing sugar until light and creamy. Add vanilla.
Beat in cornflour and plain flour. Mix until combined.

Roll mixture into small balls and place evenly on tray. Use a fork or flat surfaced glass or lid to flatten the top of the biscuits. Bake for 20 minutes or until the bottom of the biscuits are lightly golden.

Leave on tray for 10 minutes then dip base of biscuits into icing sugar. Place on a wire rack and using a sieve, dust tops in icing sugar. Leave to cool completely before moving in a jar or cellophane bag.
