Melting Moments or Yo Yo's are sold in pretty much every Melbourne cafe. But often they're dry, stale and not worth eating. Good Melting Moments are crumbly, buttery and sandwiched with a soft icing of citrus or passionfruit. They're old-fashioned, quick, and a home-made classic.
Heat oven to 170C degrees. Beat butter and sugar. Sift in flours and mix to a soft dough. Place small balls onto lined baking trays and flatten slightly. Bake 15 minutes or until golden.
Cool five minutes then transfer to wire rack.
60g butter, softened
1 cup icing sugar, sifted
Pulp of one passionfruit (strained if desired) or
juice of one lemon
Beat together until light. Spread 1 tablespoon on a biscuit then sandwich with another, twisting slightly.
