I'm making these for the first time and my mix is very creamy - the consistency of buttercream. Is this correct or have a done something wrong along the way? I've trebled my ingredients so am hoping I haven't miscounted.

It's been a while but for memory that's right.

So how am I supposed to roll it into balls per the recipe? It looks quite messy. I was expecting a dough type mix closer to shortbread.

Onto tray 2 and my god these are good. I'll be lucky if I don't eat the lot before I've made the cream.. wub.gif

They're way shorter than shortbread and I figured out that rolling with wet hands makes less mess.

They are the ones I do too.....but I don't do the icing, I just make them into biscuits.

These are really, really good too, a little trickier I think but along the same lines as melting moments http://whatscookingamerica.net/Cookie/HighTeaCookies.htm

Don't think I'll bother with the icing either. To add two together would just see me scarfing twice as much. How do I not eat 45 of these before dinner?

The ones I make are quite soft/creamy too. What I do is put the dough on a dinner plate, cut it into ball sized portions, then whack the plate in the freezer. When they're really cold I just quickly grab a blob, roll, put on tray, repeat. Press with fork, bake.

Chill in the fridge and they are easier to handle.

I love them with passionfruit icing. Yum!

I had passionfruit icing ones at a cafe once, lucky I can't remember where, they were divine!!

Now I have to be tempted not to make some too!!

Damn you!  Had to make a batch today and passionfruits are $1.50 each ATM. I normally use the ones from our own vine but it got pulled down to fix a fence.
