Melting Moments

These are the classic Edmond’s Melting Moments but with a bit of a twist. You can choose to make these on your own or get the kids involved – it’s always a fun activity!

INGREDIENTS (biscuit):

  • 190 grams butter, softened
  • ¾ cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup flour (you can use Gluten Free flour if you want)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup cornflour (GF if you want)
  • Buttercream Icing (as below) or jam


  • 150 grams butter, softened
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp hot water
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence
  • Food Colouring (optional)


DIRECTIONS (biscuit):

  • Preheat your oven to 180ºC, and line baking trays with baking paper.
  • Combine the butter and icing sugar and mix until light and fluffy, add in the lemon juice and beat until mixed.
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder and cornflour, and then add to the butter/icing sugar mixture in.
  • Stir to combine everything until a smooth dough is formed.
  • Using heaped teaspoons, roll each piece of dough into a ball, and place on the baking tray – lightly press down on the top of each ball with a floured fork.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden on the base. Leave on the trays for 1–2 minutes then place on a wire rack to cool.
  • When cold, press two biscuits together with Buttercream Icing, or raspberry jam, between them.


  1. Beat the butter until smooth, pale and fluffy.
  2. Gradually add the icing sugar, half a cup at a time.
  3. Add a bit of the hot water each time, and mix to make a creamy mixture – make sure you keep beating when you add the hot water so that the icing is fluffy.
  4. Add the food colouring but be careful – only add a few drops at a time and make sure you mix it in properly, otherwise you might end up with a brighter result than you desire.
