Melting Moments

I love trying new things, so when I stumbled across this recipe for Melting Moments I had to give them a whirl.  They are very simple to make, although they are just a little time consuming rolling the dough into little balls. I was in a bit of hurry when it came to assembling them trying to multi-task both Israels dinner and icing the biscuits before we had to head out the door with the biscuits in hand. They definitely could have been iced a little tidier, but as I transported them to a friends house for supper they also got a little knocked around in the process. If you have eaten a Melting Moment before you will understand why they are called that – which is exactly why the soft biscuit isn’t the most ideal for transporting. Never mind, they tasted great and are a lovely treat to have on the odd occassion (as they are certainly not good for the waistline). Check out the recipe below.
