Melting Moments...

Print Pin
Course: Snacks
Cuisine: Baking
Author: Maria Jose Martin


  • 1.5 cups Plain flour (210 gms)
  • 1/2 cup Cornflour (60 gms)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Icing sugar (30 gms)
  • 1 cup Unsalted butter (227 gms, room temperature)
  • 1 tsp Vanila extract

For Topping

  • 1 cup Icing sugar (110 gms, sifted)


  • In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat until incorporated. Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least one hour or until firm.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • When dough is firm, form into 1 inch (2.54 cm) balls and place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake for about 14 minutes or until the edges of the cookies start to brown. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, line another baking pan or tray with parchment or wax paper. Sprinkle about half of the confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar onto the bottom of the pan and then place the slightly cooled cookies on top of the sugar. Put the remaining sugar in a fine strainer or sieve and then sprinkle the tops of the cookies (or you can just roll the cookies in the sugar).


My cookies were ready in 10-12 minutes, so please do check on your cookies after around 8 minutes.

    I tried these today. Thet are actually melt in mouth. Thanks !
    Unfortunately ,not as tasty as the Ann’s bakery. I think they have some secret ingredient in their cookies ?

  5. Hi Maria…long time…tried our melting moments today…superb!!! it was literally melting.. came out soooo well.. by the way i tried out the pineapple upside down cake and tomato souffle..
    Abt pineapple upside down cake – it tasted very good, but presentation was a flop.. the pineapple and sugar syrup got stuck to the pan..hehe..i folllowed as per ur tasted really good..
    Abt tomato souffle – Frankly speaking i didnt like the taste..the baking was all fine.. maybe its that taste that i personally didnt like..we had it with garlic bread.. it was good to eat it hot.. but i didnt like it after it got cold.. Anyways taste varies…
    Anyways Maria.. you are way tooo good… by the way..why so much delay in new posts?? r u on a vacation??? plz post something soon.. Good luck..

    • Jincy dear – how are you doing? Hope things are great with you. How’s Xmas preps going on?

      I’m glad you liked the melting moments :) About the pineapple cake, I’m not sure why it happened :( Did you grease the tin nicely with butter? Also did you invert the cake soon, because otherwise it may stick to the tin.

      Pinne tomato souffle – yeah the taste varies for different people :) And it’s one dish that you need to have straight out of the oven. Once its cooled its texture varies & i think that affects the taste also.

      I’m not on vacation but I’m kinda busy with some personal stuff/assignments. Hence the delay. Hope to get back to blogging soon :)

      Wish you all a Merry Christmas & a beautiful new year! Please do convey my special wishes to all at home.


  6. Hi Maria,
    Your recipes are fabulous and easy.
    I tried this recipe the melting moments, the only problem i faced was after keeping the dough in the fridge it was too hard to remove the batter and make the balls, had to scrape it with a spoon.Please advise. Thanks so much and keep posting lovely recipes.

    • Hi Jan

      Thanks for visiting.

      Regarding the dough becoming very hard, I am not sure about why it happened like that.

      I got this recipe from of and I followed that recipe exactly.

      Did you keep the dough in chill tray or something?

      Hope it comes out well next time.

      Happy baking :)
