Melting Moments

Now these certainly bring back memories of when I was growing up and learning to cook. I used to have to earn my pocket money by tidying and looking after my own bedroom, doing my own ironing and helping mum out in the kitchen on a Sunday morning when she used to cook Sunday Dinner and do the baking for the week. These were a favourite make the original recipe coming from my Mum's pocket sized Be-Ro book. These will soon disappear and become a firm favourite

100g/4oz butter
75g/3 oz caster sugar
1 egg yolk
few drops vanilla essence
150g/5 oz self raising flour
dessicated coconut

Grease two baking sheets
Cream butter and the sugar together until pale and fluffy; then beat in the egg yolk
Add the vanilla essence and then stir in the flour to give a smooth dough and divide into 24 portions.
Form each piece into a ball and roll in the dessicated coconut until covered.
Place the balls on the baking sheets and bake in the oven at 190 degrees C/375 degrees F or Gas Mark 5 for 15 to 20 minutes.
Cool the biscuits on their baking sheets for a few moments before lifting onto cooling racks.

When cool make up some white icing and top each biscuit with the icing. Add a piece of cherry in the centre to decorate.

If you don't like Coconut use rolled oats/porridge oats you can even use crushed cornflakes.

These will not last long at all as they are extremely moorish
