Passionfruit soft-bake Biscuits


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.

Passionfruit soft-bake Biscuits

  • 2 passionfruit
  • 100g butter
  • 50g icing sugar, plus some to dust
  • 100g plain flour
  • 70g cornflour
  1. Spoon the contents of the passionfruits into a sieve over a bowl and press until all the juice has come out.
  2. 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.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop, place balls of dough evenly spaced on a lined baking tray.
  4. Using a cookie press or a fork, dip in cornflour and press down on the biscuit until slightly flattened.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes at 150oC, they will come out soft but will set when airing.
  6. When cool enough to handle dip in icing sugar.


These biscuits are perfect with a cuppa tea, morning or afternoon, enjoy!
