Sweet treats.

6 Dec



Melting Moments are one of the things that always sell well at markets. Visitors too appreciate them with a nice warming cuppa.  Made with butter…no margarine…actually I always use butter when baking…nothing else gives the same result.

So without further ado here is the recipe:

150g butter

75g icing sugar

25g cornflour

150g self raising flour

raspberry jam

icing sugar, for dusting

Heat the oven to gas mark 5, 190c. Cream butter and icing sugar…then add the sifted flour and cornflour. You should have a softish squidgy dough.  If too soft work in a little more flour.

Arrange 14 paper cases in fairy cake tins. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls…place in baking cases…then using a teaspoon dipped in hot water make an indentation in each one.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-17 minutes until lightly coloured.

While they’re still hot drop about half a teaspoon of jam…I always use raspberry…into the hole.

When cool dust with icing sugar using a tea strainer.

Store in a tin. Makes 14-17 delicious morsels.

Happy baking!
