If you want to impress with little effort try these delicious Melting Moments with Raspberry Buttercream. A huge thank you to the owner of this beautiful plate... I shall return it Tuesday!

Ingredients for Biscuits

125g unsalted soft butter
1/3 cup sifted icing sugar
A good dash of Vanilla essence
1 cup of plain flour
2 tablespoons of custard powder

Preheat oven to 150*c, line two trays with baking paper.

Use electric beaters to beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Sift flour and custard powder into bowl and use a metal spoon to stir until just combined and a soft dough forms.
Use a heaped teaspoon to make 30 balls, which you then flatten with a fork. Leave space between each for spreading.
Bake 15-20 mins or until lightly golden. Leave to cool slightly on trays then move to an airing rack.

A dash of vanilla
3/4 cup of sifted Icing sugar
6 small frozen rasperries, defrosted
