Yo Yo Biscuits Recipe
Recipe type: christmas presents
  • 1 ¼ cup plain flour
  • ½ cup custard powder
  • ¼ cup icing sugar
  • 187g butter
Butter Icing
  • ¾ cup icing sugar
  • 75 grams softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon liquid if required
  • If you prefer softer icing whip the butter and icing sugar with a hand held electric whisk, for harder icing add more icing sugar and a few drops of liquid. You can add some lemon juice or vanilla essence to icing if you prefer a less buttery flavour.
  1. Set oven at 180 degrees (or 150 in a fan forced oven). Grease two baking trays or line with baking paper.
  2. Soften butter (do not melt) I usually microwave it for 15-20 seconds.
  3. Sift dry ingredients and rub in butter, work into a stiff dough.
  4. Roll into balls (approximately 1 teaspoon in each) and place on oven tray. Using a fork, flatten each ball slightly to give the fork indentation. Try and keep all of the biscuits a similar size.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes (depending on oven and size of biscuits).
  6. Cool biscuits on cake cooling trays and sandwich together in pairs with butter icing. If I have time or if I am making these for a special occasion I pipe the icing in the middle of the biscuit.
