These biscuits were inspired by a food market from around the world in my local town of Chichester, found at an Italian street vender, they offered me a sample of this biscuit that simply melted in my mouth, flavoured delicately.
I set out to replicate it, using butter as the main component, adding cornflour and icing sugar to create the smooth, melting texture. Made in a food processor this biscuits are easier than you think.
It also gave me an excuse to try out my new Nordic Ware cookie press, which I love.

- Spoon the contents of the passionfruits into a sieve over a bowl and press until all the juice has come out.
- In a food processor add the butter, sugar and cornflour and process. Add in the flour and juice and process again until a dough like mix has come together.
- Using a small cookie scoop, place balls of dough evenly spaced on a lined baking tray.
- Using a cookie press or a fork, dip in cornflour and press down on the biscuit until slightly flattened.
