I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show.

But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

We had a party for Ruby’s 4th birthday on Sunday. Having thrown a few parties now, we keep the food very simple but I couldn’t resist making my grandmother’s famous melting moment biccies with a pink twist.

You’ll need:

280g softened unsalted butter
110g custard powder
110g icing sugar plus 1/2 cup extra for icing
340g plain flour
rose pink food colouring
1 tbs milk

Preheat oven to 180C.

Cream butter and icing sugar in a mixer or with beaters until the mixture is nice and pale.

Sift flour and custard powder well and add to creamed mixture and stir to combine.

Roll the mixture into small balls and space over baking trays lined with baking paper.

Press down on the balls lightly, with a fork.

Bake for 20 mins or until they start to colour.

To make icing, put extra icing sugar in a bowl, add milk and 1-2 drops of rose pink and stir. You may need to add more milk, the icing needs to be quite thick and smooth.

When the biscuits are cooled, smear a small amount of icing on one and sandwich with a like sized other.

These biccies will keep well in an airtight container, but they won’t last long.



Notes:
 
Omit the pink and add  1/2 teaspoon of vanilla concentrate if you would prefer original vanilla melting moments.
