Melting Moments...

MELTING MOMENTS
*
180gms butter, softened but not melted
(I use Homebrand butter, please do not use margarine)
1/3 cup icing sugar
1 tspn vanilla extract
1/3 cup corn flour
1.5 cups plain flour
*
Preheat the oven to 180C
Line baking trays with Gladbake silicon paper (never fail/always non stick)
*
Using electric beaters, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until light and creamy.
*
Fold in sifted flours gradually until smooth and combined. If it is a bit sticky, just add a spoonful or two of plain flour until you can easily roll a ball in your hand.
*
Roll large teaspoonfuls of mixture into smooth, evenly sized balls. Place on trays, evenly spaced then press down on each ball with a 'floured' fork to make the line pattern.
*
Bake for 6 minutes then turn trays around and bake a further 5 minutes or so, keeping an eye on them so they don't brown too much but just have a golden tinge.
*
Remove carefully from trays and allow to cool on a wire rack.
*
ICING
1 large tblspn condensed milk
1 large tblspn softened butter
1 - 1.5 cups icing sugar (give or take - if its too dry, add a little more milk)
*
Beat cond. milk and butter until creamy then beat in the sugar until creamy. Place icing in piping bag and sandwich biscuits together. Allow to set then arrange on a pretty plate and dust with icing sugar.
*
