My Melting Moments (adapted from a Be-Ro recipe), enough to melt a man’s heart and bring a smile to any child’s face ~ although not too many for me as they don’t agree with my waistband! Enjoy these with a cup of tea or coffee and they also make great offerings for charity coffee mornings etc.
100g (4ozs) Butter or margarine
75g (3ozs) caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
150g (5ozs) Self Raising flour
oats or dessicated coconut
glacé cherries, quartered
To help shape “ball” type biscuits, slightly dampen the hands before shaping.
Heat oven to 180ºC, 350ºF, Gas Mark 4. Grease two baking trays.
Cream the butter or margarine and the sugar until very light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour and mix well.
Roll walnut sized pieces of the mixture into balls and toss in rolled oats or desiccated coconut.
Place on baking trays, flatten slightly and place a small piece of cherry on each biscuit.
