Every summer we would go camping for the entire 6 week school holiday and for weeks before hand my mom would try and stock up on baked goods. I believe she found this recipe in a Your Family magazine and it was my favourite. In the end she took to hiding the biscuits from me because otherwise I would finish them before we even hit the camp site. She has since passed the recipe on to me and I now make them quite often. They are really easy and yum!
My mom says the original recipe called them Melting Moments or something like that. I don’t know why I have in my mind Angels Delights. My mom has long since lost the original magazine page, but thankfully typed this out. She called them Piped Biscuits in the copy she gave me.
250 g Butter
80 ml icing sugar – sifted
375 ml Flour
125 ml Cornflour
Cream butter and icing sugar until soft and creamy. Sift flour and cornflour and work into butter mixture.
Spoon dough into piping-bag fitted with medium rose tube. Pipe “S” shapes, circles and finger shapes onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 180°C. 15 minutes. Cool.
Makes about 18.
Optional extra (and well worth it) Dip ends of biscuits in 100 g melted chocolate, leave to dry.
My one tip is that they are much easier to pipe when the butter is a bit softer – as in it really must be room temperature. Also, it is easier if you don’t over fill the piping bag. Rather put a smaller amount in it and refill.
I hope you enjoy.
Yummy Mummy – your custard biscuits remind me a lot of these except yours are even easier to make and Mr OL prefers your recipe…
