Melting Moments



I was in the mood for baking today. I also wanted to bake something quintessentially Australian...Melting Moments! These babies literally melt in your mouth in all their buttery goodness! And the rich creamy icing in between is to die for. They are very rich so I can only eat one at a time...probably a good thing! I adapted the recipe from my one of my fave cookbooks Kitchen by Marie Claire magazine. I substituted lemon juice for the passionfruit juice but that's only because I've never seen a passionfruit in Doha!
