Yo Yos

  • 6 oz (170g) plain flour
  • 2 oz (60g) sugar
  • 6 oz (170g) butter
  • 2 oz (60g) custard powder
Lemon icing:
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • Small knob butter
  • 1 lemon

In a mixer,  blend all the ingredients. It will first become a series of crumbs, keep going until it forms a smooth, glossy, yellow dough.

Get your yo yo sculpting implements. Using a teaspoon, scoop into small balls, roll between your hands and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Indent the biscuit tops with a fork.

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 160 degrees.

Mix the icing ingredients, adding more sugar until a stiff icing is formed.

Once biscuits are cooled, glue together with the icing. As good as your Nanna makes!
