    4. Cream the butter and sugar together - 40 sec / speed 4.

    6. Spoon out mixture onto trays (see note below) and press with fork.

    7. Bake 12-14 minutes until slightly golden and move to cooling rack (see note).

    Icing

    1. Add all ingredients to clean, dry bowl - 10 sec / speed 4.

Tip

Tips: Step 7 - Teaspoon-sized will get 50 pieces (25 biscuits).  Step 9 - When transferring to cooling rack, pair them up size-wise with one face up and one face down, ready for icing.  Step 2 - Ice all face down biscuits before joining so if you have been too generous or stingey you can rectify before joining all the biscuits up.

Disclaimer:  This is the CWA Yo-Yo recipe, which has been passed down through a few generations in my family.  Thanks CWA, you have great stuff!

Costs: As at Feb '15, these cost:

- all Homebrand - $1.09 (4c ea) or all brand names - $2.82 (11c ea)

    Submitted by Wilstontm5 on 12. August 2018 - 15:23.

    These are so delicious. You cannot stop at just one.
    I wanted to try piping them the way you see in shops so I added an extra 95g butter to make it soft enough. It then made 29 complete biscuits. I increased the icing mix by 50% but would double it next time.

    Submitted by HelenaCC on 29. April 2018 - 13:58.

    Perfect! I make these weekly, and everyone loves them. I always double the recipe. I find teaspoon sized biscuits a bit small, so I use a level amount of dough on a 15ml spoon to make the biscuits. I end up with 30 completed yoyos out of a double batch. I find I need to add about 5ml of milk to the icing to make it come together. Thanks for such a lovely recipe.

    Submitted by Feesthermi on 19. February 2018 - 12:35.

    Yo-yos are my all time favourite biscuits but I’ve been on a ban as my boys are allergic to dairy. Simply converted this recipe using Tablelands smart spread in place of butter and whamo! Absolutely delicious. Thanks for converting the recipe and the tips and tricks made it so much simpler - thanks!!!

    Fabulous recipe. My oven slightly over cooked top tray and undercooked bottom tray at 180 deg 12 mins. Next time might shuffle trays at 6 or 7 mins. Not a fault in recipe though, fault in my oven! Thanks for sharing, will definitely make again.

    Loved these! Successfully used 45 grams cornflour and a teapsoon of vanilla essence instead of 45g custard powder in the biscuit as per other comments. They didn't last long enough to make icing and sandwich together.

    Submitted by Tracy's Thermomix on 5. November 2015 - 17:57.

    Hi Shahenie.  Custard powder is basically cornflour and vanilla (and a couple of other things).  Maybe try that instead.  I have never done it so I'm not sure.

    Yummy biscuits. I doubled the recipe and adjusted the timing as a result as I was being lazy and did not want to make another batch .  I will also use lemon icing as I like it better.

    Thermotess, I'm no expert but perhaps you could try cornflour and a little extra icing sugar and vanilla in its place?  I'm the same with custard powder as I don't like the additives.  I look forward to trying these though!
