These biscuits are actually called Melting Moments but they are affectively known as Nani’s Bisuits in our family. My mum used to make these all the time when we used to get together, they were the kid’s (and our) favourite. So buttery and moreish, perfect with a cup of chai.
They are super easy to make, even Mufti Menk made them the other day! The recipe I used is not the same as his though. The one I used is one that has been passed down to me from family.
- 250g butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup cornflour
- 1 cup plain flour
Pre heat the oven to 160c.
Cream the butter and icing sugar together. Add the vanilla extract.
Add the cornflour and plain flour and mix it by hand until you have a dough.
Place the dough mixture in a piping bag with a large nozzle attached.
Pipe each biscuit onto a baking tray (make them as long or as short as you want). Make sure there is some space in between the biscuits.
Bake them in the oven for around 10-12 minutes till they’re lightly golden.
Once you remove the biscuits from the oven, let them cool down on the tray for another 10 minutes.
Once the biscuits are cooled, you can dip them in some melted chocolate to make them even more indulging or leave them as they are as they’re equally tasty.
