Yo Yo Biscuits with Passionfruit Cream - Wicked Wednesday

It's hard to believe another week has passed and we have another wicked Wednesday upon us.

This week I've rolled up the sleeves and made some delicious Yo Yo biscuits with a delightful passionfruit cream centre.  These are really, really nice.  They are sweet but not too sweet as the passionfruit adds a delightful tang to the Yo Yo biscuits.

These little gems are loved by young and old and can be served with anything from a formal High Tea to a school lunch treat.

Ingredients:  Makes 9 to 10 joined biscuits


  • 185 g Butter (softened)
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup custard powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Passionfruit cream

  • 2 passionfruits

  1. Preheat oven to 180c.
  2. Cream the butter and icing sugar.
  3. Add sifted flour and custard powder in three batches and mix well.
  4. Form into balls, slightly smaller than a ping pong ball and place on a lined oven tray.
  5. Gently press each biscuit with the back of a fork.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes.

Passionfruit Cream

  1. Sieve the passionfruit pulp to remove the seeds.
  2. Add pulp to the melted butter and 1 cup of the icing sugar and mix well.
  3. The cream must be quite firm, so continue to add icing sugar until you reach a firm consistency.
  4. Allow the biscuits to cool, before joining the biscuits with the cream.
  5. Enjoy
