|Are they yo-yos or melting moments? It doesn't matter, they're delicious whatever their name!|
4 tbs icing sugar (pure), sifted
1 1/2 - 2 tsp vanilla extract
450g plain flour
4 tbs cornflour
Preheat oven to 160c. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Sift the flours together into a bowl. In a medium/large bowl, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla together with an electric beater until creamy. Add the combined, sifted flours and cut through the dough with two knives to mix in (like a 'hand' food processor!).
Shape tablespoon size portions of the dough into balls and place onto trays, leaving a few centimeters between each ball. Flatten slightly with a fork (dipped in flour to prevent sticking) and bake for 15-20 minutes, until lightly golden around the edges. Allow to cool on a wire rack completely before filling.
50g butter, softened
1 tbs combined grated zest and juice of a lemon
1 tbs combined grated zest and juice of an orange
320g icing sugar (pure), sifted
Place all filling ingredients into a small bowl of an electric mixer and mix well, slowly at first, then increasing speed to fluff up mixture. Add a couple of extra drops of juice if you think the mix is too dry. Spread generous amounts of filling onto cooled cookies and sandwich together to form 'yo-yo's'. Enjoy!
