Just a quick recipe before one of the best days of the week begins! (Well, Friday begins anyway). These are a little alternative in terms of melting moment-flavours, which lemon and passionfruit usually reign supreme over, but hey, it’s nice to change it up 🙂 If you don’t have custard powder, use 1/4 cup cornflour instead, should work a treat. Enjoy 🙂
Chocolate and Boysenberry Melting Moments
1/3 cup icing sugar
1 cup flour
1/3 cup custard powder
1/4 cup cocoa
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp boysenberry jam, plus extra to fill
2/3 cup icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Soften the butter and beat with the icing sugar until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, custard powder and cocoa. Mix into the butter until just combined. Divide the dough up into 20 pieces and roll into balls. Place on the baking tray and flatten with a fork. Bake for 15 minutes until the cookies move when gently nudged. Cool on the tray.
Soften the butter and beat with the jam and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Pipe a ring of frosting onto the bottom of half of the cookies and spoon a bit of jam in the middle. Place another cookie on top and wait for the icing to set. Lasts a few days and makes 10 pretty size-able cookies 🙂
