Melting Moments (Donna Hay)

4. Jun, 2015

I found this recipe in a Donna Hay cookbook. I have tweaked it a little as I thought Almond would taste great with orange icing. And it does!

175g softened butter

1/4 cup icing sugar

1 cup flour sifted

1/4 cup cornflour sifted

1tsp vanilla extract.(I used 1/4stp almond essence as well)

Preheat oven to 180deg celcius

Place butter, icing sugar and essence in a bowl and mix with an electric beater until light and fluffy. Stir in flours. Pipe onto a baking tray lined with non stick baking paper. Allow room for spreading. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden.Cool before icing.


60g butter

1cup icing sugar

2tsp orange juice

2tsp finely grated orange rind.

(I added a drop of almond essence)

Beat with electric beater until fluffy and ice biscuits.
