Melting Moments with Strawberry Buttercream

So I am not a mom yet but I will be soon:)

I googled what it means to be a mom, and this was the first thing that came up:

“TO HAVE A LOVE SO DEEP THAT NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND, UNLESS THEY HAVE EXPERIENCED IT. CARING MORE ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE’S NEEDS ABOVE YOURS, NO MATTER WHAT. PROTECTING SOMETHING SO PRECIOUS YOU WOULD GIVE YOUR OWN LIFE,TO SAVE THEM”

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mom’s out there – it doesn’t seem like an easy job. Love you Mom

For the biscuits

  • 175g unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup (40g) icing sugar
  • ¼ cup (35g) custard powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (150g) plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder

For the filling

  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam
  • 60g butter – room temp
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla seeds or essence

Preheat oven to 160

Line a baking tray with baking paper.

In a bowl, cream together your butter and sugar and vanilla extract using electric whisk or paddle of mixer. Add the custard powder, baking powder and flour. Mix until well combined, roll into one big ball.

Take a teaspoon of mixture, and roll into a ball. Place on baking sheet. Do this until all mixture used up. Dip a fork in flour and lightly press down on each ball to flatten.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden on edges, remove from oven and let cool completely.

    1. Thank you so much! I am definitely feeling really maternal which is something I never thought I would say – it’s quite amazing how you can love someone you haven’t even met yet:)

Let me know what you think!
