Thanks to the wonderful Scottish-French foodie blogger Jill Colonna for allowing us to share her recipe for these delectable Melting Moments cookies. Jill says that a birthday party for her daughters isn’t complete without Melting Moments.

The original recipe came from the Brownie Cookbook (as in the guiding movement and not squidgy chocolate squares!) and Jill says that she made it for one of her Brownie badges and it was the first recipe that she made completely on her own.

Recipe below. You can also view the full story on Jill’s blog.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Stir in the flour, oatmeal and baking powder and mix well.
  2. Roll walnut size pieces of the mixture into balls, and roll each one in the oat flakes. The mixture should make around 30 biscuits.
  3. Place them on baking trays covered in baking paper or on a silicone mat, flattening slightly each one with the finger, then place 1/4 glacé cherry on each (or any other candied fruit – candied orange peel is good, too.)

  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown then cool on a wire rack.

    Jill Colonna is from Edinburgh but for the past 25 years has been living the French-Scottish life in Paris with her Corsican husband and teenage girls.  Jill is author of two patisserie recipe books, ‘Mad About Macarons’ and ‘Teatime in Paris’ and writes at MadAboutMacarons.com
