Note: + cooling time
- 125g butter, softened
- 3/4 cup (110g) plain flour
- 1/4 cup (40g) icing sugar mixture
- 1/4 cup (35g) cornflour
- 1 tbs custard powder
- 1 tsp finely grated lemon rind
Mixed berry filling
- 1/4 cup frozen mixed berries
- 2/3 cup (110g) icing sugar mixture
- 60g butter, softened
- 1/2 tsp finely grated lemon rind
- 1 tsp lemon juice
Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter in a bowl until very pale. Add the flour, icing sugar, cornflour, custard powder and lemon rind and stir until just combined.
Roll teaspoons of the mixture into balls. Divide among the lined trays, 3cm apart. Use a fork lightly dusted in cornflour to gently flatten each ball. Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 10 mins or until light golden. Set aside on the trays to cool completely.
To make the mixed berry filling, cook berries in a small saucepan over low heat for 2 mins or until berries start to break down. Cook for a further 2 mins or until mixture thickens slightly. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. Discard solids. Set aside to cool completely.
Use an electric mixer to beat the butter in a medium bowl until very pale. Add the icing sugar and beat until well combined. Add the berry puree, lemon juice and lemon rind and beat until well combined.
Spread the mixed berry filling over the flat side of half the biscuits. Sandwich with the remaining biscuits.
