Rowie’s Melting Moments


375g unsalted butter, chopped and softened

185g (1½ cups) pure icing sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons honey

500g rice flour, plus extra for coating


150g butter or dairy-free margarine, chopped and softened

1 tablespoon milk

250g (2 cups) pure icing sugar

1 tablespoon passionfruit pulp.


These taste so good you will not believe that they are gluten-free. You will absolutely
melt with glee the moment you bite into one. Makes 24

Preheat the oven to 160°C.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Cream the butter, sugar, vanilla and honey in a large bowl with electric beaters until pale and fluffy.

Add the rice flour and mix well. Using lightly floured hands, roll the mixture into walnut-sized balls and place on the prepared tray. Gently flatten each ball with a fork dipped in some extra rice flour.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until just golden. Remove from the oven and leave on the tray to cool.

To make the icing, beat the butter and milk until pale and creamy. Add the icing sugar gradually until well combined, then add the passionfruit pulp and combine well.

When the biscuits are completely cooled, sandwich two ‘moments’ together with the passionfruit icing. These bikkies can be stored in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 5 days.
