Melting Moments

I LOVE melting moments!!!! I love the butteriness of them, how when you bite into them, they literally do melt in your mouth! Well, they are supposed to! I have found that every time I purchase one of these delicious morsels that they are hard and don’t really melt at all… You would think that I would get use to purchasing food that doesn’t quiet live up to my standards, but honestly I am always disappointed.

I would like to think that, everyone who makes food would put the same sort of love and care into their food that I do, but alas…it is not so! So I resort to always making my own… because then at least if I am not happy with the result it is my own fault! LOL!

This recipe makes 48 large biscuits (tablespoonful), which makes 24 large melting moments. You could make them smaller if you choose (teaspoonful) which makes 96 small biscuits and 48 small melting moments.

Personally I could just eat these delicious short biscuits without the icing!

When you are making up the biscuits be gentle with them, as they are a fragile and break easily. With out the icing they are a very inexpensive plain biscuit that are great to have in the fridge. Once you have made them all up, grab a cuppa and enjoy one of these “Old Fashioned Favourite” biscuits of mine. It is a good idea to store these biscuits in an airtight container in the fridge as they are very “short” (full of butter) and will go off quickly in warmer temperatures.

Please don’t forget, when you pop in, to say hello as I really value your comments and love to answer your questions!

Enjoy Irresponsibly!
