give the yo-yo a go.

Passionfruit melting moments.

Yo-yos more commonly known as melting moments are another old school recipe to add to your repertoire. Resembling a toy yo-yo they are delicious, crumbly, buttery and simply melt in your mouth.

The next level up from your standard shortbread, two biscuits are sandwiched together between a layer of creamy vanilla or passionfruit icing. Yo-yos can be made into all different sizes from mini to large and perfect with a cup of tea.

Like the name implies, this classic biscuit reminds me of moments in time. From family celebrations to afternoon teas enjoying homemade treats and even the time my netball team was named the Yo-yos after the shortbread master (my Nan).

This recipe has been tried and tested by many but for some reason they never quite work out exactly the same as the pro. What is the secret!?! #patienceiskey #workingonit

If there’s one recipe worth giving a go – I highly recommend the yo-yo!

1 1/2 cups SR Flour
2 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp icing sugar
180g melted butter (6 oz)

For the Icing: 
5 tbsp icing sugar
Vanilla/Passionfruit Pulp

Combine flour, cornflour, icing sugar and (melted) butter and mix with hands. Roll into even sized balls and place onto tray with baking paper. Press fork into the balls. Cook for 15 mins at 180c.

Combine icing ingredients together. Adding a little more icing sugar if needed until you achieve a smooth, thick consistency to spread onto the biscuits. Place onto half the biscuits and press the other biscuit on top making sure the fork marks are facing the same way.
