After the kneading the dough it should look moist but still crumbly. It should easily roll into a soft ball.

When baking the biscuits do a test batch in your oven to get the correct cooking time. Ideally you want to take the biscuit out 30 secs before they start turning brown.

    Used double mixture. Make sure butter is very soft. Used half plain flour and half cornflour. Exceptionally scrummy!! They just melt in your mouth. Be careful when sandwiching them as very delicate. Cooked at 160° for 13 minutes. Be sure to use butter and not marg equivalent.

    I added half a small passionfruit to the final step of the filling for a more contrasting taste. Worked out beautifully.
