Melting Moments

Posted on: November 3, 2008

When it comes to biscuits, nothing belts a melting moment. A good melting moment literally does, melt in your mouth. Once the biscuit melts, you’re left with the sweet and soft filling, also melting on your tongue creating dance waves across your taste buds.

When it comes to eating my own creations, i’m usually quite good at restraining myself. I get more pleasure of out making things rather than eating them (the pleasure comes from seeing others enjoy my cooking) but i have to say when it comes to melting moments, i just cannot stop at one… or two.. or five.

Melting Moments


  • 200 grams butter (softened) (not unsalted butter please)
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar (sifted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup corn flour
  • 1 1/3 cup plain flour


  • 1 cup icing sugar (sifted)
  • 45 grams butter (softened)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

For passionfruit filling, replace lemon juice with passionfruit


  1. Pre-heat oven to 150C
  2. Line two baking trays with baking paper
  3. Using an electric beater or electric hand mixer, beat butter, icing sugar and vanilla together until creamy and completely corporated and smooth
  4. Add cornflour and mix till well combined, then add flour and mix well
  5. Using your hands, roll mixture into balls and place on tray (make sure there are even numbers)
  6. Using a flat surface (i used bottom of a cup and floured it a little to stop it sticking), gently flatten the balls to form discs (make sure the balls are all the same size)
  7. Using a fork, press into the centre of the discs to indent them
  8. Bake for 20 minutes until they are golden and firm to the touch
  9. To ensure the biscuits are even, swap the trays half way through
  10. Cool biscuits on the tray for 10 minutes then transfer onto a wire rack for another 10 minutes
  11. Whilst waiting for the biscuits to cool, make filling
  12. Pipe or place a heaped teaspoon onto flat side of one biscuit and top with another, pressing down gently
  13. Repeat process till all biscuits are filled

Lemon Filling

  1. Using an electic mixer or a hand held beater, beat butter, icing sugar and lemon until incorporated and smooth

Biscuits will keep well in an airtight container for up to 4-5 days – if they last that long!

Okay, well, you’ve convinced me, I have to try these – your description is making my mouth water! I love melt in your mouth cookies, and they are so hard to find. Like you, I get much more enjoyment watching others eat what I make than eating them myself, but these sound really good.

Wow! I am so excited to find this recipe online! I made passion fruit melting moments from Bill Granger’s Holiday Recipe book over the Christmas break and they were quite divine! I wanted to make some for a birthday bash next weekend and didn’t have the heart to ask my mom to type up the recipe for me. Is this the same recipe – looks like it? Great site by the way, I’ll be back.
