Melting Moments


As promised, I am here to share my current favourite Christmas cookie – The Melting Moment. These delectable bites really do melt and crumble in your mouth and with a recipe this simple, it’s easy to make them at a moment’s notice (did you get that? did you see what I did there?) I included some hydrangeas in my photo today, because down here, the festive season occurs in the midst of summer when these beautiful plants are flowering.

Notes on the Recipe

I double this recipe, so I have plenty to offer friends and family, or even wrap some up for gifts.
You could make red and green icing for Christmas-themed cookies.
You could probably just dollop small amounts straight onto a tray if you don’t have a piping bag, I’m sure it would be fine. The mixture would be too wet to handle too much or roll into a ball, but you could scrap little mounds from a spoon.IMG_2699
These look lovely if served dusted with a little icing sugar.
