|I also need to work on my icing sugar dusting technique - bit clumpy!|
After careful shaping, the balls were on the tray and I knew I'd definitely done something wrong when I saw I was meant to press lightly with a fork on the them.... a quick press on a couple led them to fall apart completely into rubble on the tray! By this point I really couldn't be bothered faffing so I just bunged them in the oven as they were and hoped for the best.
They were clearly too big and they took way over the cooking time. Really they were quite beastly and not the delicate little biscuits they are meant to be. Anyhow, I soldiered on and sandwiched them together with the custardy creamy filling and they actually passed the taste test - they did still have the melt in your mouth effect hooray! They were definitely too big though, I think they need to be bite size because they are so rich and buttery.
I will have to try making these again - I saw someone make them on Australian Masterchef this week and so I think I am going to pause the telly and write down her recipe as I'm sure I remember there being a perfect shot of it all written down neatly! If you know of a good melting moment recipe please let me know....!
