Melting Moments

I have wanted to make this for years... Procrastination... Embarassed Finally tried it and it really melt in your mouth...



Ingredients:
250g Butter (unsalted)
55 - 60g Icing sugar
225g Plain flour
75g Corn flour
Pinch of salt

Method
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
2. Sift icing sugar, set aside.
3. Sift together plain flour and corn flour, set aside.
4. Beat butter, icing sugar and pinch of salt using mixer until light and fluffy.
5. Stir in sifted flours.
6. Take rounded teaspoon of dough and roll it into a ball with you palm. Place the balls about 3cm apart on a baking tray. (Alternatively, you can place the soft dough into a piping bag fitted with fluted tube to pipe it)
7. Use a fork to flatten the balls.
8. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 15 mins.
9. Cool on wire racks.

Note:
1) Use butter that gives nice buttery smell and taste. As you notice, this is the main ingredient in this recipe. I used Anchor Butter this time and I am not very happy with it.
2) I was reading SeaDragon's blog, you can also use custard powder or rice flour to replace corn flour. The texture is supposed to be slightly different.

if you do a google search on Melting Moments, can find 100s of recipes. Each one claiming to be the original. All I know is that MM must not have egg, essence. And also no butter!

My suggestion, add 1 tsp. of pure vanilla extract, it will make the cookie smells and tastes better. Very Happy

Of course you can use orange, or lemon extract for different flavor.

Thanks for the recipe. My dh loves this. He was wondering why it was named melting moments. I told him that it was because once you put it in your mouth, it totally melted! :roll:

Gina, is it lard instead of butter?

Connie, not yet but going to, will make my twist on the cookie when I do make it. You know I'm lazy in the baking department right? Embarassed

Belachan

the suspense of this.. :twisted: not lard either. just another hint: I made this every year for CNY for my MIL. She's a Buddhist Vegetarian.

The only person I have shown how to make this was Jean Lee. But to date, she still cannot get it right. in the end, I had to bake a big box for her to eat.

the dough is very crumbly before baking. I had to use a cookie scoop to make this.

Ghee (highly clarified butter)? I noticed Ghee is widely used in Indian Vegetarian recipes... Ha ha ha! This guessing game is fun... Wink

Ching - like your twist in melting moments... You just add some coconut on top of the melting moments to make Coconut Melting Moments?

ai yo..it shows how much you folks do NOT know me coffee

I don't like ghee..haven't you noticed that already. Very Happy

The first MM I baked was the one that JC_Mum shared here. The dough is very soft and somewhat creamy. Difficult to manage and stay in shape. I have since modified that basic recipe and come out with this.

Whenever I give to people to try, these are the comments about it:

taste like Almond Cookies
taste like Butter Cookies
taste like Sugee Cookies

but it does not have any Sugee, Butter or Almond in it.

now the dough(improvised version) resembles bread crumbs. Cannot put in the fridge and must work quickly to shape it.

It does not use Crisco or any type of shortening. :lol:

Ha ha ha! I was reading cookies recipes and found out that you dislike Ghee before I came to here. Embarassed So, now I know you better already! :lol:

Ai yah yah! Got to take that recipe to trial & error uh? OK, I take that up as a challenge. I will let you know how mine turn out as and when I try my "challenge"!

Rgds, Connie

Hmmm...*cracking my head*

You definitely need some sort of liquid or oil to bind those flour together. It can be eggs, but you did say no eggs right? Or coconut milk? Aiya, I donno lah. :lol:
