Fancy A Yoyo

Once, I went to Melbourne and I brought back a box of biscuits called Melting Moments. When I came across this recipe, it reminded me of those unforgettable biscuits. It might have been better not to have come across this recipe, but I just had to recreate that moment once more.
You'd probably be speechless after a bite of these. Honestly they are full of butter, but it's only for the moment hence it's called Melting Moment. It's also called a yoyo and the biscuit does live up to its reputation. 
Most of these were also wrapped up and stored away for the kids that my mom has to treat.
Butter melting away in your mouth. Every bite is only for a moment. 

Yoyos (or Melting Moments)
Makes 10-14

175 grams butter at room temperature
1/4 cup icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/4 custard powder

50 grams butter at room temperature
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons of custard powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Place baking paper on a tray.
  2. Cream 175 grams of butter with 1/4 cup icing sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and beat. Sift flour and 1/4 cup custard powder into the butter mixture and mix well.
  3. Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Place on oven tray and flatten with a fork. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

  1. Meanwhile, beat remaining butter, icing sugar and custard powder together until well combined.
  2. When the biscuits have cooled completely, sandwich the cream in between two biscuits.
