Passionfruit Melting Moments

• 200 g butter, softened
• 90 g icing sugar
• 60 ml (¼ cup) lime juice
• 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
• 225 g plain flour
• 100 g cornflour
• 1 cup passionfruit curd
• 225 g icing sugar
• 75 g unsalted butter,
room temperature
• 30 ml (1½ tbsp) lime juice

1. To make the biscuits, beat butter, icing sugar, lime juice and vanilla paste with an electric mixer for 3 minutes, until pale and creamy.
2. Sift flour and cornflour over the butter mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. Refrigerate 10 minutes to firm up slightly.
3. Preheat oven to 160°C and line two oven trays with baking paper.
4. Roll a heaped tablespoonful of dough into a ball, place on lined tray and press lightly with the tines of a fork to form a cross-hatch pattern on the top. Repeat with remaining dough to make 24 biscuits.
5. Bake approximately 14 minutes until just golden. Cool briefly on trays,
then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
6. To make lime butter, beat all ingredients with an electric mixer for
3 minutes until pale and creamy.
7. Top half the biscuits with lime butter and refrigerate 15 minutes to firm up.
Top lime butter with a spoonful of cooled passionfruit curd and sandwich with remaining biscuits. Store sandwiched biscuits in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
