Munchable Melting Moments

Sunday morning – making me think of food again – feeling a little homesick for NZ makes me think of my childhood favourite cookies – Melting Moments!


This recipe is largely based from my trusty Edmonds Cookbook (unbelievable – first published in 1908)  with a little Funky modification 😉


175g butter, 1/4 cup icing sugar, 1tsp vanilla sugar, 1 & 1/2 cups flour, 1/4 cup custard powder


Preheat oven to 180°

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla sugar  until light and fluffy

Sift flour and custard powder then add to butter mixture

Roll teaspoons of mixture into balls

Place on paper lined oven tray and flatten slightly with the back of fork

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes



75g butter, 3/4 cup icing sugar, 3tablespoons custard powder


Simply beat all ingredients together until well combined.


To Assemble:

Place butter filling on the underside of one cookie, then add a dollop of cherry jam, place another cookie on top and voila!

Enjoy with a nice cup of English Breakfast tea and think of New Zealand!
