Old Fashioned Yoyos - Thermomix recipe
250g raw sugar
400g butter, roughly chopped
2 tsp vanilla extract
270g plain flour
1 tbsp lemon juice
Preheat oven to 160°C.
Place 50g sugar in TM bowl, mill for 20 seconds, speed 10.
Add 280g butter and vanilla, chop for 10 seconds, speed 7. Scrape down sides.
Mix for a further 30 seconds, speed 4.
Add flour and cornflour, mix for 15 seconds, speed 3. Scrape down sides.
Mix for a further 5 seconds, speed 3, or until mixture comes together. Refrigerate mixture for approximately 30 minutes, or until firm enough to roll into balls.
Roll mixture into approximately 36 small balls, 3cm in diameter and arrange on a lined tray. Press down gently on each ball with the back of a fork, dipping the fork in flour for each indentation to prevent from sticking.
Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Do not remove biscuits from tray until cool.
Meanwhile, mill remaining 200g sugar for 20 seconds, speed 10.
Add remaining 120g butter and lemon juice, mix for 10 seconds, speed 4, or until a creamy texture.
When biscuits are completely cool, spread half with icing 3-4mm thick and gently sandwich a second biscuit on top.
Store in an airtight container.
