This recipe is for all of you who really want these cookies to melt in your mouth! ...and they make cute little gifts.
Take 350g softened butter add it to 1/2 icing sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla essence. Cream the ingredients with an electric egg beater until light and fluffy. Add 1/2 cup wheatened cornflour and 2 cups of plain flour, mix with the beater until just mixed. Pipe the mix with a pastry bag into rosettes and bake at 180C for 10 minutes. Make sure your oven is pre-heated and if it is not fan forced then bake at 200C. Once the cookies are cool, take two cookies; pipe butter icing on one cookie and make a sandwich.
When you look at the sandwiched cookies, it looks like a yo-yo; hence why they are called yo-yo!
Flavours: Use lemon juice in the icing or passionfruit or both. You can put a tablespoon of poppy seeds in the cookie mix and use lemon icing to make lemon&poppy seed ones.
