Melting Moments biscuits

The Great Australian Bake Off topic this week was biscuits. And not just any biscuits, but filled, sandwich biscuits.

Now biscuits rarely last long enough to bother pairing and icing in this house, but rising to the challenge, I waited until the kids were at school before baking these biscuits (mostly because I forgot to get the dough out of the fridge, and it was too cold at 6am to roll into balls)

Sophie helped to make the icing that holds the biscuits together (she loves nothing more than pouring and mixing, and often dances a jig when I say "let's bake"), and then she proceeded to stick her finger in the bowl and eat half the icing, sans biscuits!

190g butter, softened
1/3 cup icing sugar
3/4tsp vanilla
1/4 cup cornflour
1 & 1/3 plain flour
lemon filling
1 cup icing sugar
1Tbs soft butter/margarine
juice of half a lemon

* cream butter and sugar
* add vanilla, mix well
* add sifted flour and cornflour, mix well
* refrigerate 1 hr
* roll into even sized balls
* bake 180°C 12-14min
* allow to cool completely
* mix all filling ingredients in a bowl until smooth
* spoon filling onto one biscuit, place on top of another biscuit, allow to set

The Great Australian Bake Off airs on Lifestyle at 8.30 AEST Tuesdays.

Next week's topic is choux pastry.
