Whether you call them Yo-Yo biscuits or Melting Moments it doesn’t matter. I love this recipe, it is quite simple and easy to prepare. This recipe would be great for getting the kids involved in baking. A very elegant alternative to offer for afternoon tea or when friends pop in. Enjoy!

185 g butter

Pre-heat oven to moderately slow (160°C).

Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl.

Sift together custard powder and flour 2-3 times.

Add to butter mixture and mix well.

Form into small balls, place on a lined baking tray and press flat with fork dipped in flour.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until firm.

When cold, join with vanilla or lemon-flavored butter cream.


Spread jam in the middle with the vanilla or butter cream.
Store in an airtight container in the cupboard for up to 30 days.
