Melting moments.

Today I really fancied some biscuits! I was trying to decide if I had enough ingredients in my store to make some but was put off because I hadn't got any eggs. Anyway, I remembered my granny used to make some biscuits called Melting Moments so I had a hunt about on the internet for a recipe, turns out there are a lot of different versions, most of which use an egg. Well with a bit of perseverance I found a recipe that didn't require an egg and made 28 biscuits. Very delicious. I don't really like my biscuits too sweet so this appeals to me, but if you have more of a sweet tooth than me you may wish to add a bit more sugar.



175g s/r flour 
125g cornflour 
50g icing sugar 
225g butter 
1 tsp vanilla extract


Put flour, cornflour and icing sugar in food processor and mix briefly. Add butter (chopped into small chunks) and vanilla and mix until it comes together into sort of dough (can take a few minutes). 

Roll mixture into small balls size of marble and place on baking tray with a little space in between. 

Dip a fork in cold water and press down on each one to flatten slightly and score. 

Bake for 10-15 mins at 160C fan/325F/gas 3.

  2. hi
    your cookies looks delicious.thanks for sharing the recipe!
    have a nice time,

  3. I could do with some of those right now, after my car boot stint!!

  4. I've made biscuits aswell today (for our Virtual Teaparty). You're very welcome to join us. You could bring your biscuits! I'll certainly be trying your recipe as I'm on a biscuit roll at the moment. In fact, on closer inspection, your recipe looks similar to the shortbreads I've just been baking. What a coincidence!
    Love from Mum

  5. They really are yummy Debbie!
    To be honest mum, they do taste like shortbread as it turns out, but that is ok, because I love shortbread!
    Well done on two successful days of carbooting Sarina, that's a great profit, you certainly do deserve a biscuit!
    Welcome Regina, I have just joined your blog and look forward to reading it!
