Sweet Dreams!

OK yes I admit it, I dream about these babies! They are the most morish, yummy, short and sweet morsels you will ever try. Sorry about the terrible photo, they in no way do them justice but you must do yourself a favour and bake these. (I always double the batch!)

Raspberry Melting Moments
(recipe from taste.com.au)


  • 125g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup pure icing sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons custard powder
  • pure icing sugar, to serve

  • Raspberry filling

  • 60g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup pure icing sugar, sifted
  • 6 small frozen raspberries, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Sift flour and custard powder over butter mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined and a soft dough forms.
  2. Using 1 heaped teaspoon of dough per ball, make 30 balls. Place on prepared trays, leaving room for spreading. Using a fork dipped in flour, lightly flatten each biscuit until 1cm thick. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden. Cool on tray for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, make raspberry filling: Using a whisk, beat butter in a bowl until light and creamy. Add vanilla. Whisk to combine. Add icing sugar. Whisk until well combined. Stir in raspberries.
  4. Spread the flat side of 1 biscuit with 1 teaspoon filling. Sandwich with 1 biscuit. Repeat with remaining biscuits and filling. Serve dusted with icing sugar.(Or you can fill a piping bag with the filling and do a swirl on one side before pressing them together)
