Yo-Yos – makes 10-20, depending on the size you want these little morsels to be!
175g butter, softened
1/4c icing sugar
few drops of vanilla essence
1 1/2c plain flour
1/4 custard powder
Preheat oven to 180degC.
Cream butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy; add vanilla and beat again.
Sift flour and custard powder together; mix into the creamed mixture and stir until well-combined (if the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, use your hands to bind everything together completely).
Roll teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls – make sure you roll an even number. Place on a baking tray and flatten with a fork; bake for 15-20mins.
When cold, sandwich two biscuits together with butter filling.
50g butter, softened
