150 g plain flour plus 50 g extra if required
40 g self-raising flour
70 g custard powder
175 g butter at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla esence
80 g soft icing mixture (or icing sugar + 10g cornflour)
250 g icing sugar
40 g butter at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla esence
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan). Line two baking trays with baking paper.
Place flours and custard powder in bowl and mix on speed 3 for 20-30 seconds to combine. Remove from bowl and set aside.
Soften butter if required (40 seconds at 50°C on speed 4). Place butter, vanilla and icing mixture in bowl. Beat on speed 4 until pale and fluffy. Add flour mixture; mix on speed 1 until just combined, then beat on speed 4 until smooth. Add extra flour to form dough if required.
Roll a rounded teaspoon of dough into a ball and place on prepared trays. Lightly press down with a fork. Repeat with remaining dough.
Bake for 10-12 mins or until just browned. Stand for 5 mins then remove to a rack to cool completely.
Place icing sugar and butter in bowl and mix on speed 4 until pale and well combined. Add vanilla and lemon juice; mix on speed 1 to combine. Beat on speed 4 until fluffy. Add a little extra lemon juice if needed to get the correct consistency. Sandwich biscuits together with filling.
This recipe is easily doubled, just use the spatula to scrape down the bowl as necessary.
You can make the icing filling with lime juice for a different, but equally delicious flavour.
If you prefer to avoid the additives and yellow food colouring in ordinary custard powder, you can use Orgran custard powder instead, available at most health food stores. See http://www.orgran.com/products/170/ for more information.
