home > recipes > dessert > melting moments
Hi folks. Apropos to my recent "Melt in your Mouth Cookie" recipe contribution, here is a similar one from the New Zealand woman's bible, the Edmonds Cookbook; first edition published in 1955 and reprinted yearly ever since. (the Edmonds people make baking powders, flours, box cakes and other related goods) There have been over 3 1/2 million sold and that's the population of my country. Anyway, to make a long story short, the New Zealand version is one called: Melting Moments 200 grams butter (3/4 cup) 3/4 icing sugar (powdered) 1 cup flour 1 cup cornflour 1/2 tsp baking powder butter frosting or raspberry jam (or whatever jam is handy) Cream butter and icing sugar until fluffy. Sift flour, cornflour and baking powder together. Mix into creamed mixture, mixing well. Roll dough into small balls the size of large marbles and place on greased oven tray. Flatten slightly with fork. Bake at 180 or 350 for twenty minutes. Cool and if desired, sandwich together with butter icing or jam. Makes 16 pairs or 32 singles. Butter Icing 100 grams butter softened (1/3 cup) 6 Tbsp icing sugar, sifted 1 Tbsp custard powder (I'm hoping this ingredient is available where you are!) Beat all ingredients till smooth. If you've tried both recipes, I'd sure like to know how they compared, or if not, how you liked them anyway. And three cheers for our leader! Dave, you're doing a super job. I really appreciate your effort and am sure I don't speak alone. Thanks for everything, and thanks to all of you for filling my recipe book to overflowing. Your recipes are wonderful, and my husband is in hog heaven. rayna@iconz.co.nz

Hi folks. Apropos to my recent "
Melt in your Mouth Cookie" recipe
contribution, here is a similar one from the
New Zealand woman's bible, the
Edmonds Cookbook; first edition published in 1955 and reprinted yearly ever
since. (the Edmonds people make
baking powders, flours, box cakes and other
related goods) There have been over 3 1/2 million sold and that's the
population of my country. Anyway, to make a
long story short, the New
Zealand version is one called:

Melting Moments

200 grams
butter (3/4 cup)
3/4
icing sugar (powdered)
1 cup
flour
1 cup cornflour
1/2 tsp
baking powder
butter frosting or raspberry jam (or whatever jam is handy)

Cream butter and
icing sugar until fluffy. Sift flour, cornflour and baking
powder together. Mix into creamed mixture, mixing well. Roll
dough into
small balls the size of large marbles and place on greased oven tray.
Flatten slightly with fork.
Bake at 180 or 350 for twenty minutes. Cool and
if desired, sandwich together with
butter icing or jam. Makes 16 pairs or 32
singles.

Butter Icing

100 grams
butter softened (1/3 cup)
6 Tbsp
icing sugar, sifted
1 Tbsp
custard powder (I'm hoping this ingredient is available where you are!)

Beat all ingredients till smooth.

If you've tried both recipes, I'd sure like to know how they compared, or if
not, how you liked them anyway.

And three cheers for our leader! Dave, you're doing a super job. I really
appreciate your effort and am sure I don't speak alone. Thanks for
everything, and thanks to all of you for filling my recipe book to
overflowing. Your recipes are wonderful, and my husband is in hog heaven.

Umm, sorry to point this out but if the recipe uses Custard powder in the filling, then it's not a Melting Moment, it's a Yo Yo. Melting Moments have plain lemon vanilla icing holding them together.
