    Biscuits
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan). Line two baking trays with baking paper.

  2. Place flours and custard powder in bowl and mix on speed 3 for 20-30 seconds to combine. Remove from bowl and set aside.

  3. 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.

  4. Roll a rounded teaspoon of dough into a ball and place on prepared trays. Lightly press down with a fork. Repeat with remaining dough.

  5. Bake for 10-12 mins or until just browned. Stand for 5 mins then remove to a rack to cool completely.

  6. Filling
  7. 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.

Tip

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 //www.orgran.com/products/170/ for more information.

    Yummo. Thanks! I added zest of one orange to the batter mixture. And squeezed the orange juice instead of lemon for the filling. I didn't have icing sugar, so used icing mixture for both bits. Seems to have turned out ok. Waiting for them to cool down so I could sandwich them was painful! Big Smile

    I have just finished making these biscuits. They are very yummy. I didn’t have custard powder so used cornflour and added a bit of yellow gel colour to give them some colour. They worked out well.

    Submitted by Smartremark on 16. May 2015 - 15:21.

    I love this recipe, it is foolproof! I find there is too much icing, but that's ok, as I make another batch. I too use a piping bag for icing and find it easier.

  • I really loved this recipe.

    Submitted by megancetinic on 20. February 2015 - 16:47.

    I really loved this recipe.  I did change it slightly though.  I must have a hot oven as the biscuits only needed 8 minutes.  Also I used the butterfly whisk when I made the filling as I felt it gave a better result.  

    I have made it twice and the first time I used a whole teaspoon as I prefer a more tart flavour but the second time I used a whole passionfruit and this came out the best!

    Absolutely amazing. I doubled mix straight up as I knew these would be a hit! I too just needed to add a little more liquid for spreadable icing ( I do cheat and put in a piping bag to make it quicker!) thank you for sharing.

    Thanks so much for all your lovely comments! I'm glad everyone is enjoying making and eating these tasty biscuits tmrc_emoticons.)

    Vet - I've never made them without the custard powder, sorry, so I'm not sure. I use the Orgran brand as it doesn't have the artificial colour in it that the standard one does. If you wanted to leave out the custard powder all together, I'd probably try substituting it with half plain flour and half corn flour, which would make it similar to a melting moment biscuit. Let me know how you go!
