Another nostalgic afternoon in the kitchen, making these rich, delicious Ozzie treats. The Yo yo, aptly named, involves the sandwiching of two thick buttery biscuits with a sweet vanilla cream. My man with the munchies cannot stop eating them. Get the recipe here…
Yo- Yo recipe
Cream butter and icing sugar until pale, add vanilla paste mix to combine, Add sifted dry ingredients, mix until you reach a soft dough. Roll into small even sized balls, place on greased trays, flatten with a fork. Bake 10-15 minutes at 180c. Make sure not to brown them too much, as they’re meant to be a soft gold colour When cold, join together with Vanilla Custard Icing. Makes 35 bite sized biscuits.
Vanilla Custard Icing
200g Icing Sugar
1 Tbsp Butter melted
1 Tbsp Custard Powder
1 tsp Vanilla essence
Sift icing sugar and custard powder into a bowl, add melted butter and Vanilla essence. Add boiling water a little at a time until you reach a spreadable consistency.
I baked them a tad too long. They aren’t supposed to brown. Still tasted yummy though!
