I have been posting a few Christmassy recipes of little kisses (cute little tasty biscuits stuck together with icing) we enjoy them every Christmas. They are all variations on some yummy super-simple biscuits I learnt to make one Christmas in Norway many years ago Melting Moments! I love these as they were some of the first biscuits I made for Aars when he was a toddler – they don’t have much sugar in them, hardly any ingredients and they have custard powder in them; which to my surprise (back then) does not have egg in it!
Original Norwegian Melting Moments – Ingredients
sunflower spread, icing sugar, self raising flour, custard powder
Original Norwegian Melting Moments – Process (makes 64)
- Pre-heat the oven to 170ºC
- Prep some baking trays with baking paper
- In a bowl beat the following thoroughly:
- 6 oz sunflower spread
- 2 oz icing sugar
- In a separate bowl mix:
- 6 oz self raising flour
- 2 oz custard powder
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix very well
- Even though the mix seems wet & cloying it rolls into little balls well
- Roll the mix into little balls and place on waiting baking trays
- I made 64 balls from this mix
- Pop into the oven for 15 minutes
- Place on a cooling rack once cooked
Eat and enjoy. The great thing about this recipe is that the biscuits freeze wonderfully, I store them in air tight containers. They defrost in less than two hours.
