If you don't your family and friends will never forgive you. As long as you don't show them this post, which I totally want you to do.
Monte Carlo biscuits
125 grams butter
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cups SR Flour
1/4 cup custard powder
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
Jam and icing filling
75 grams butter
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon milk
1/3 cup strawberry jam
Preheat oven to 180C.
Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy.
Add the milk and beat to combine.
Sift the flour and custard powder, add with the coconut to the bowl and mix in to form a soft dough.
Roll about 2 teaspoons worth to make small balls.
Place on baking tray and press with a fork to flatten. Dip the fork in flour first, to stop it sticking to the dough.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes.
Let the biscuits cool while you make the icing.
To make icing, beat the butter and icing sugar in a small bowl, Beat in the milk.
Spread one biscuit with half a teaspoon of jam, and half a teaspoon of icing on another, then join the two together.
