Scrumptious, crumbly chocolate biscuits sandwiched together with decadent vanilla buttercream, that’s why they are called “Lovelies”!
Makes 10 Approx 25p each
Prep time 15-20 minutes Cooking time 15 minutes
185g unsalted butter, softened
80g icing sugar
150g plain flour
30g cocoa powder
Pre-heat oven to 170C/150Fan/Gas3 & line two baking trays with baking paper.
Beat the butter & icing sugar together until creamy.
Sift in the flours & cocoa powder & stir in.
Take heaped teaspoons of the mixture & place on the prepared trays a few cms apart.
Bake for 15 minutes & allow to cool on the trays.
For the buttercream filling:
80g unsalted butter, softened
160g icing sugar, sifted
1 tsp vanilla extract
Beat the butter & icing sugar together until creamy then add the vanilla & mix until combined.
Using a teaspoon, place a blob of icing in the centre of a biscuit then take another biscuit & sandwich them together-push gently so that the icing squidges to the edge. Alternatively you can use a piping bag like I have done!
The “Lovelies will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
