Heart Melting Moments

Heart Melting Moments

So firstly I would like to say, sorry it has been a while since my last post, you would think that being in insolation it would give me more time to write, but the reality is between baking for the #100happybakingdays and keeping the three Kwirky Kids occupied….I feel like I am busier than ever!!! Crazy times my friends! However, recently I have had a few requests for recipes so I have made it my mission to make sure I get these posted. So tonight, I made a coffee (a very strong one!) and sat down to make sure I got these done before Netflix started calling to me!

Now, onto the reason why you are here…Melting Moments!! If you grew up in Australia there is every chance that you have experienced the deliciousness of these melt in your mouth biscuits (cookies, if you are in America). These much loved Aussie classics literally melt in your mouth and it was alway a happy day in our home when these were being baked! In our house they were traditionally lemon flavored, but the beauty of these little darlings is that they are so versatile, that you really can add any desired flavor and they are still going to taste AMAZING!

They are quick, easy and definitely do not require any great baking knowledge or skills. Truth be told, I haven’t actually baked Melting Moments in years, in fact, I can’t actually remember the last time I did before I started my #100happybakingdays challenge. So I am thrilled that this journey that I started has reminded me to go back to my roots on quite a few recipes. It really does bring so much joy being able to share these childhood favorites with my family.

If you have been following my #100happybakingdays, you may have seen that on Day 37 I did the first batch with Lemon Biscuit and a Raspberry Buttercream….which was truly decadent. However, more recently on Day 93, I made Vanilla Biscuit with Lemon and Passionfruit Buttercream and these seem to be a big hit amongst my friends. It is only now that I have learnt that these are very much an Australian bake and my American friends had not experienced these before. It also prompted quite a few requests for the recipe from some of my fellow bakers. So it is with great pleasure that I share the love and the recipe for Melting Moments, go forth, bake and enjoy! You will not be disappointed!


227g (1 cup) Unsalted Softened Butter

1/2 cup Icing Sugar (confectioner’s sugar)

1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 cup of Cornstarch

1 1/2 cup Plain Flour

Cream the butter and sugar together until they are well combined, turn a lighter shade of yellow and has a fluffy consistency.

Add the Vanilla Extract and mix until combined.

Add the cornstarch and flour half a cup at a time and mix on a slow speed, until well combined.

I then use a small ice-cream scoop to ensure that all the biscuits are the same size, then roll them into balls and place on a baking paper lined cookie tray. Use a fork to flatten the balls and place in the fridge for approximately 30 mins.
