Earlier this week, sat baking under French sun, with the smell of freshly baked bread filling the air and within sight of a mouth salivating-ly delicious array of patisseries, I cracked. Three months of daily gym sessions down the drain with a week’s worth of macaroons, madeleines, biscuits and brioches. It’s true what they say, a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips. Now that any chance of continuing with the gym regime has flown out of the window, I thought I’d share with you the most scrumptious biscuit recipe known to a lazy student.
I call them burger biscuits because there’s a little vanilla butter cream sandwiched between them, giving them an adorable, fun element. For a friend’s birthday I made a batch and added some pink colouring to the icing. When I’m feeling even lazier, I’ll dip half of them in chocolate and gobble them individually. Perhaps because there are so few ingredients involved, buying the right ones really makes a difference. Try and use vanilla extract rather than the essence if you can get hold of it
This amount should yield about 15 burger biscuits. You can vary the filling as you want, or switch the vanilla for cinnamon, ginger or whatever tickles your pickle.
