I did a bake sale with several of my favourite cookies and these ones came out the crowd favourite! They are so melt-in-your-mouth (as the name would suggest) and the fruity tang makes you want to eat more than you should. Enjoy this kiwi classic!
Cookies 125g butter, at room temperature 115g plain flour 45g icing sugar 50g custard powder Icing 60g butter, at room temperature 110g icing sugar 2 tsp freeze dried fruit powder (choose any flavour you like, I used strawberry in these photos but passionfruit is also a classic) OR 2 Tbsp passionfruit pulp OR zest & juice of 1 small lemon Preheat oven to 160°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper. Place butter in a bowl or bowl of your stand mixer and use electric beaters to mix until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the flour, icing sugar and custard powder and stir to combine. Using a teaspoon measure, roll mixture into balls and place on prepared tray. Use a fork to flatten each cookie slightly. Bake for about 15 minutes, until cooked through and slightly golden on the edges. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Place all icing ingredients into a bowl or bowl of your stand mixer. Use electric beaters to mix until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Once cookies have cooled, spread icing onto one cookie and place another cookie on top to make a melting moment!
