Is there a more melt-in-the-mouth creation than the melting moment? Buttery. Light. Scrumptious. Swoonworthy. These creations are always a hit and if you were to package them up in a pretty box and give to someone close to your heart they would be very appreciative, I’m sure. You can omit the passionfruit from the icing if it doesn’t float your boat and they will still be gorgeous.

250g softened butter, cubed
1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted
2 cups plain flour
1/3 cup cornflour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
60g butter, softened
1 large passionfruit
1 cup sifted pure icing sugar
LET’S GET TO IT:
Preheat oven to 160C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
In bowl of mixer beat butter, vanilla and icing sugar until light and fluffy.
Sift flours over butter mixture and beat until a soft dough forms.
Roll teaspoonfuls into small balls and when on tray use a fork dipped in flour to gently flatten.
Bake for 15 minutes or until firm and allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
To make the passionfruit filling: beat butter in electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in passionfruit pulp and icing sugar.
Spread flat side of biscuit with filling and sandwich with another biscuit.
