Not only are they delicious, but they are also very easy to make. It takes very little time to make the most delicious of biscuits, or cookies.

Simply make the dough and immediately shape into balls. Flatten a little with a fork and then bake them. Then, as they cool, make an icing sugar and passion fruit juice filling to sandwich pairs of biscuits together.

It is all as simple at that. Indeed, they can be ready to eat in less than an hour. You can also vary the flavouring. Try with lemon or orange, for instance.

My Melting Moments

I actually made these twice, since one of my cameras was out of focus the first time.

Both batches baked very well indeed in 16 minutes.

Then as they cooled I made the icing and sandwiched pairs of biscuits together.

The moment was then ripe for tasting. I was most certainly not disappointed. The texture of the biscuit as perfect. So soft and tender. The icing too was great, a simple mixture but so sweet and flavoursome.

The combination of biscuit and icing was a perfect match, making these very moreish.

  • 100g(14 tbsp) icing sugar

  • 260g(1 2/3 cups + 1 tbsp, based on scooping packed flour into a 250ml cup) plain flour

  • 30g(3 1/2 tbsp) custard powder (or cornflour)

  • 15ml(1 tbsp) passion fruit juice

  • 5ml(1 tsp) vanilla extract

  • pinch of salt

  • Icing
  • 120g( 1 cup) icing sugar

  • 15ml(1 tbsp) passion fruit juice


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/350F.
  • Line a couple of baking trays with parchment paper
  • Cream the butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Add the salt, vanilla extract and passion fruit juice and mix to fully combine.
  • Mix the custard powder into the flour and then add to the butter mixture.
  • Continue to mix it( I used my hand mixer) until everything clumps together into a soft dough.
  • Use a hand to squeeze the mixture into a dough, just to confirm it is all combined.
  • Divide the dough into 20 equal portions, of about 28g to 29g, or a good tablespoon full.
  • Roll each portion into a ball and place onto the baking trays, leaving a good gap between each.
  • Press the tines of a fork into the top of each ball, flattening it a little.
  • Bake the biscuits in the oven for about 16 minutes, until they just begin to colour slightly.
  • Remove them from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Mix the remaining passion fruit juice into the icing sugar and stir it to a thick paste. If too thick add just a little more juice, or water. If too thin add more icing sugar.
  • Turn over half of the biscuits and spoon an equal amount of icing onto each.
  • Press another biscuit onto the top of the icing to make a sandwich biscuit, making 10 in all.
  • Leave for just a few minutes to let the icing set firmer, then serve.
