I have been participating in Helarious’ Baketober Baking Challenge, I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to learn to bake new things. So far this week, all I have baked is a Cheesecake and today I have baked Vanilla Melting Moments.
I ended up finding the recipe for Vanilla Melting Moments on the packet of my Wheatfields Plain Flour. The recipe caught my eye because firstly I love Melting Moments and secondly the recipe did not seem to require the use of a mixer. The only thing that I was confused about with the recipe, was what is a fluted tube. I still have no idea what a fluted tube is, but I assume it is just like a piping tip.
The Vanilla Melting Moments did not take very long to bake, the recipe was very straight forward. I decided to make vanilla cream filling rather than the passionfruit filling that they had suggested. I was so nervous that it may not work out, that I spent ten or so long minutes anxiously waiting by the oven.
Finally the Vanilla Melting Moments were baked and they looked gorgeous! I ended up cheating by eating one, they tasted so delicious and they just melted in my mouth. Absolute heaven!
I left the biscuits to cool down and started to make the filling. I ended up using a different recipe for the filling that I found online. I piped the filling onto the biscuits and they looked so pretty.
Of course I immediately tried one, the Vanilla Melting Moments tasted so delicious.
Next time I may make a different filing or try to use actual vanilla beans to give it a more real vanilla taste.
