Yo-yo biscuits

It seemed appropriate to take this picture on one of Gran's plates because she used to make the BEST yoyo's of all time, hers always looked just like the fancy magazines, not like these rather chunky ones that I have created with the icing running because i wasn't patient enough to wait for the biscuits to completely cool. But even if I say so myself, they still taste pretty darn good with a cuppa.
  • 250g softened butter
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup custard powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 30g butter
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 Tblsp hot water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celcius. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper or grease the trays. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. mix in the vanilla.
Sift over the flour, custard powder and baking powder. Mix gently to combine.
Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixtureinto balls and place them on the baing trays. Use the palm of your handto flatten each slightly.
Bake to yoyo's for 25-30 minutes until they are just starting to colour. Leave them to cool for a few minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack. To make the filling, mix all of the ingredients together until the mixture is light and creamy. Sandwich the yoyo's together with the filling.

Enjoy xx
