Melting Moments 1.0

When I saw Julia's melting moments on Masterchef 2012, I was pretty intrigued by it since it was raved by the judges. I definitely can remember my version of melting moments that I baked for Chinese New Year. It was simple and very easy to make. Best of all, it melts in your mouth. Duh!! Heehe...yes, I love things that melt in my mouth ;P

I remember I saw the recipe from Cook.Bake.Love which I thought was easy to make. See my notes in blue.

  • 125g butter, softened at room temperature (use only SCS butter for that strong, buttery flavour)
  • 40g icing sugar
  • 125g potato starch
  • 80g superfine flour (can be replaced by plain flour) (I prefer to use cake flour for that softer and airy taste)


  1. Beat butter and icing sugar till fluffy and pale yellow in colour, sift in potato starch and flour, mix to form a soft dough.
  2. Roll into small balls, arrange on lined baking pan and press lightly with a fork. Bake in preheated oven at 150C for 20 mins, upper rack.


  • At stage 1, if you are using a mixer to mix the potato starch and flour into the butter mixture, do take extra care. Flour will fly and I do mean, fly. Use a cloth to cover or whatever it takes to avoid flying of flour @@
  • I used a 1/2 tbsp ice-cream scoop to aid the scooping of the dough as the dough is pretty soft, rolled the dough into round balls.
  • For that design in the middle, I dipped a fork in water and pressed on the cookie. 

Someday, I will try Julia's melting moments. I would like to taste how it feels like with vanilla buttercream and raspberry jam. It sounds so awesome :)
