  • For the biscuits:
  • 250g butter
  • 80g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 75g corn flour
  • 225g plain flour
  • For the icing:
  • 100g butter
  • 300g icing sugar
  • 2tbs passionfruit pulp = passionfruit icing or
  • 2 tbs cocoa = chocolate icing or
  • 2 tbs lemon juice = lemon icing or
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract = vanilla icing or
  • 2 drops of your choice of food colour = colour icing
  1. For the biscuits:
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  3. Add the butter, icing sugar and vanilla to the TM bowl and mix on speed 6 for 15 seconds until it is smooth and creamy.
  4. Add both the flours. Set the thermomix to the closed lid position and set the dial to knead for 1 minutes.
  5. Roll the dough into small balls (about 1 tsp amount). Make sure they are a couple of cm's apart because the biscuits will spread.
  6. Using a fork, press each ball down to flatten it. Dip the fork into water to prevent sticking.
  7. Bake for approx 15 minutes or until the biscuits are a golden brown colour just around the edges.
  8. Allow to cool before icing.
  9. To make the icing:
  10. Add all the ingredients to the TM bowl and mix on speed 6 for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and repeat. You may need to add a couple of tbs of hot water to it to get the right consistency.
  11. Once the biscuits are cooled. Ice them together and enjoy.
These biscuits will last up to 5 days if kept in a sealed container.
