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.
2 sticks butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar (10x sugar)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour (sifted)
1/4 cup corn flour (sifted)
- Preheat oven to 350
- Cream together the butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy - about 10 minutes.
- Mix in the sifted flours until just blended.
- Form tbsp balls and place on cookie sheet leaving a cookie length between the cookies.
- Bake for 10 minutes, then remove to cooling rack.
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.
