    You bewt Yo Yo recipe.

    Written on the back of a 1951 Xmas card in my Mums' handwriting. (Yes children....That's how we humans used to communicate whilst fighting off dinosaurs!)

    2 cups plain flour: 1 cup = 250 grams post 1975
    1/2 a cup best custard powder you can afford. = 125 grams post 1975
    1/2 cup Icing sugar.
    250 g cubed butter melted in a bowl over a boiling saucepan of water. Not the 500g square block. The half a that one.
    1 Tsp vanilla extract or essence.

    Sieve the dry stuff together into a bowl, mix well.
    Add vanilla essence to butter then into the bowl, mix well, roll into balls about as big as a 20 cent piece. = 2 Bob pre 1966.
    Put on a greased with butter wrapper before you chuck it in the bin, baking tray, press with a fork tyne to a thickness of around 6 mm (1/4" pre '75). Spaced about 10 mm (13/32" pre '75) apart.
    Bake in preheated oven @ 160 C for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. (stuff the conversion on that!)

    Let them cool right out or you'll bust/mangle them, use a butter knife to loosen them underneath.

    Filling....I use the best lemons I can get. Mayer if you can get them.
    1 1/2 Cups Icing sugar
    1 tsp softened butter.
    1 tsp lemon zest*
    1 tsp chopped mint* *optional but nice.
    2 tbs warm, not hot, lemon juice.
    Add lemon juice and butter to icing sugar mix until really stiff.
    Adding more Icing sugar if it aint. Or, leave it to cool then join the yummy little bickies together using the icing mixture.
    Call dentist and dietician for appointment.
    I hope you enjoy them. I did!!!!!
    Or just the bickies are a cheat to shortbread!

    Nice. I will make them for Mrs Fab. She is a sugar junky and will probably appreciate them.

    Just whipped up the biccies sans filling.

    Certainly no complaints from the munchkins.

    Always follow your Doc's advice.
