Passionfruit Kisses or Passionfruit Melting moments are a delicious way to impress your guest and use up some passionfruits.
250g unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla essence OR 1 tbsp passionfruit
1/2 cup pure icing sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 custard powder
2 large passionfruit
2 cup pure icing sugar
Preheat oven to 160°C. Line two trays with baking paper.
Cream butter, vanilla and icing sugar with an electric mixer.
When mixture is light and fluffy, add flour and custard powder and continue to mix until a soft dough is formed.
The most artistic and probably easiest way to place mixture on the trays is to use a piping bag. If this is not an option, roll mixture into a ball and flatten neatly with a fork. I like to make mini ones about 3cm in diameter but they look great a bit bigger too. Depends how far your want your mixture to last!
Place in oven for 15mins or until firm – note they don’t really change colour.
Allow biscuits to cool completely before creaming.
To make the passionfruit cream filling, beat butter until light and fluffy and then add in icing sugar and passion fruit. Mixture should be nice and creamy.
Again, if you have a piping bag it is easiest to pipe icing onto biscuits and then place a second biscuit lightly on top and squeeze together. If you don’t have a piping bag gently spoon icing on and smooth with a knife.
Then let them melt in your mouth with a nice hot cuppa tea! My sister taught me how to make these delicious melting moments. If you want to change them up a bit use freshly squeezed lemon, vanilla or even coffee instead of passionfruit!
