Need You

Biscuit Sandwich

Welcome to April’s Secret Recipe Club reveal for Group A!  Normally when I get my blog assignment I go to the recipe page and read everything, saving and pinning anything that catches my eye.  This time however I was transfixed by a thumbnail on Chit Chat Chomp  and HAD to make it.  So I first searched her dessert page, trying to not be distracted by all her delicious goodies before finding MY recipe on her baking page: Melting Moments.  Leigh made these for her boss’s birthday and for some strange reason was not given a raise, which blows my mind because oh my goodness are these biscuits insanely good.  I had to make a change to the custard filling, switching the lemon curd for vanilla due to my citrus allergy.   Not so surprising Leigh has a recipe for vanilla custard as well so I used that as the filling for my biscuits!  I just halved that recipe and dropped the zest – super easy and super incredible.  We wound up with some “extra” pudding after assembling the cookies and it was very hard to not lick the bowls clean.

I also enjoyed the irony of getting an Australian blog seeing as how I got one just over a year ago when my little sister moved to Australia for a year.  She gets back next Monday (!!!!) and I can’t wait to get all the food details about her trip.  I have a feeling I’ll be making some more of Leigh’s recipes once she gets back, especially since she has a very large vegetarian recipe section.

  1. Just dropping by to let you know that I had a wonderful time cooking from your site this month for SRC. So many delicious recipes! I made your Greek Baked Eggs and will have to keep that on rotation for breakfast/brunch ideas. So happy to have gotten to know you a little better. 🙂

  2. best line: “for some reason she did not get a raise”

    😉

    your biscuits are a dream! Great job on your assignment this month…

  3. My mouth is watering. Your cookies look so delicate, and that custard definitely looks worthy of a bowl lick or two. Oh yum!

  4. Thanks for your lovely comments Amanda and I’m so pleased you enjoy them. I love that you also used the custard as a filling – what a great idea ! Might have to try bribing the boss again this year, perhaps with the custard filling instead. 🙂

  5. If they are called “biscuit sandwiches” does that mean I can eat one for lunch instead of a “regular” sandwich? I’m just kidding, of course, but honestly I’d be glad to skip the main course and get straight to one of these. What a wonderful SRC choice.
