Yesterday I was very busy cooking up a storm. One of my, and I think everybody's, all time favourites is the humble yoyo. Crumbly, buttery goodness that sticks to the roof of your mouth. A dead easy and classic biscuit that never gets old. 

180g Plain Flour
180g Butter, softened
60g Custard powder
60g Icing Sugar
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 Tbs Butter
1/2 tsp Vanilla

To make the Yoyos...
Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius.
Place all ingredients into a food processor or mixer and beat until a soft dough forms. It might look like bread crumbs for a little while but persist and the dough will soon come together. 

Roll teaspoon full of mixture into balls. Place on a tray lined with baking paper and press done with a fork (I like to dip the fork in flour as I go to stop it sticking). Cook for 10-15mins. Allow to cool before sandwiching together with vanilla icing. 

To make icing...
Beat all ingredients together until light and fluffy.

Enjoy with a nice cup of tea and try to stop at just one.
