Passionfruit Yoyos


For the past few days we have been blessed with beautiful weather – less like winter and more like a Tassie summer!  All of these sunny days have led me to thinking about tropical fruit especially passionfruit so when I saw some fresh passionfruit at the grocery store yesterday, I couldn’t resist.

I decided to use my favourite biscuit recipe and add some custard powder to the basic mix and sandwich them together with a tangy passionfruit icing.  I think the end result is delicious!

Bon appétit!

125g butter

3 tbsp icing sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 cup Self Raising Flour

1 tbsp custard powder

Passionfruit Icing

3/4 cup icing sugar

1tbsp softened butter

1/2 passionfruit

Preheat oven to 180C.

Cream butter and sugar, then add vanilla.  Fold in flour and custard powder then roll into walnut sized balls, place on a tray and press down lightly with the tines of a fork that has been dipped in flour to prevent sticking.

Bake for approximately 12 – 15 mins or until cooked through.

When biscuits are cool, mix all icing ingredients together and  spread on biscuits then sandwich two together.  Store in an airtight container.
