Melting Moments by Franke oven

A lovely take on traditional short bread cookie and guaranteed to melt your hearts..


190g butter

40g (1/4 cup) icing sugar

2 tsp vanilla

210g (1 1/2 cup) regular flour

30g (1/4 cup) cornflour

Buttercream filling

75g butter

125g (3/4 cup) icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1-2 tsp milk


  1. Cream butter, icing sugar and vanilla until pale*
  2. Fold in flour & corn flour until combined
  3. Portion dough into about 28 small balls (or use an ice cream/melon type scoop for uniformity)
  4. Flatten dough balls gently with a fork
  5. Bake on 160c for about 12 mins**. Allow cookies to cool completely

Buttercream filling

  1. Whisk butter, icing sugar, vanilla and milk until well combined
  2. Using a piping bag with star tip, pipe filling onto one side of the cookie and top gently with another cookie.


*Short bread is such a forgiving recipe: mixing all ingredients at the same time (combine method 1 & 2), on low speed is totally fine!

**If you like the cookie to finish with little browning, try baking at 140c for 35 mins. When ready, leave the oven door ajar for about 5-10 mins and then remove trays from the oven to cool

Delicious, melt in your mouth cookies
