  • 250 butter - softened
  • cup of icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 ½ cups of self raising flour
  • ½ cup of custard powder
  • 60 g of butter - softened
  • ½ cup of icing sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of lemon juice


  • Line two baking trays with paper and preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  • Place 250g of the butter and a ⅓ cup of icing sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until it’s light and fluffy. With the mixer on a low speed, add the the vanilla essence and continue to mix until combined.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer stand and sift in the self raising flour and custard powered and mix with a knife to form a dough.
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop up the mixture and shape into balls - you should have around 28.
  • Place the balls onto your baking trays and flatten slightly with a fork before placing the trays into the oven to bake for 20 minutes or until the cookies are slightly golden.
  • Allow the melting moments to cool slightly on the baking trays before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once they have cooled, it’s time to make the filling. Add 60g of softened butter, ½ cup of icing sugar and 1 ½ tablespoons of lemon juice to the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until the mixture combines and is light and creamy.
  • Smear a little of the filling on the bottom of one biscuit before sandwiching it together with another.
