It’s a nice simple recipe, a little twist on the basic melting moment to make it fun for the little ones. Strawberry and cream is a delicious flavour in the buttercream instead of using the usual lemon and rind. Even adding sprinkles or colouring of your choice to the cookie mix to make it stand out.

Ingredients (makes 25 )

  • 250g Softened butter
  • 80g Sifted icing sugar
  • 225g Sifted plain flour
  • 75g Cornflour
  • 1tsp Vanilla essence
  • Buttercream icing
  • 60g Softened butter
  • 1 cup Sifted icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Strawberry & cream flavour
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1-2 tblsp Rainbow sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 160° Beat the butter, sifted icing and vanilla essence until it is light and fluffy then stir in the sifted flours in two batches.
  2. Lightly flour your hands to roll mix into small balls. Place on baking paper covered tray about 3 cm apart and flatten cookies slightly with a fork. Bake for about 15 minutes or until a pale straw colour and cool on wire racks.
  3. For butter cream, beat butter and sifted icing sugar with electric mixer until it thickens, going white in colour, fluffy and thick. Add and beat in the flavours and sprinkles.
  4. Sandwich two biscuits together with a dollop of butter cream to serve. Refrigerate if desired before serving and storage to keep butter cream nice and firm.

  • Oh you melt my moment

  • A classic and delicious recipe!


  • Such a simple recipe with basic ingredients that I can make. I love the touch of sprinkles in the filling.


  • Oooh, my childhood. Yo-yos take me back there. I don’t know if you can mess with the original in this instance though.


  • Love the cream ingredients to sandwich the melting moments together. Thanks so much for sharing.


  • I love melting moments- the addition of strawberry sounds delicious!


  • This is deadly, but I will give it a go. Thanks for this!


  • going to make these with red and green sprinkles for Christmas


  • To make them uniform sized, I roll the dough into a roll and slice them, matching sizes! Sounds like a tasty option. I’ve also added lemon butter into the icing mixture


  • I love to make melting moments for the family and I love twists on favourite recipes. Thanks for sharing your melting moments recipe.

      • I agree! It is always fun to add twists to recipes. Your photo of your Melting Moments looks terrific too. :)


  • Great idea! I think these will be great for my next kids birthday party! Love the sprinklers, and perfect for the rainbow themed party!


  • I think I’d prefer this version too not just the kids.

    • It is delicious! Another adult version is adding baileys to the buttercream instead of the essence ????


  • Looks like some relish birthday cake or party ideas! Bookmarked for later
