YoYo biscuits

I love my new KitchenAid stand mixer! Isn't it pretty? The first thing I decided to make with it was yoyo biscuits.
Here is the recipe:

Vanilla yoyo biscuits
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup custard powder
175g butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup soft icing mixture
1 1/2 cups pure icing sugar
40g butter, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
A few drops of food colouring, if desired

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Attach flat beater to stand mixer. Place flours and custard powder in bowl with shield and mix on speed 1 to combine. Remove from bowl and set aside. (If you don't have a stand mixer just sift the flour and custard powder into a bowl and mix together.)

2. Place butter, vanilla and icing mixture in bowl. Beat on speed 6 until pale and fluffy. Add flour mixture; mix on speed 1 until just combined, then beat on speed 4 until smooth.

3. Roll a rounded teaspoon of dough into a ball and place on prepared trays. Lightly press down with a fork. Repeat with remaining dough.

4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Stand for 5 mins then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

5. Meanwhile, make filling. Attach flat beater to stand mixer. Place icing sugar and butter in bowl and mix on speed 4 until pale and well combined. Add vanilla and lemon juice; mix on speed 1 to combine. Add a few drops of food colouring if desired and then beat on speed 4 until fluffy. Sandwich biscuits together with filling.

Ooh and look at the pretty red spatula that goes the mixer-

So cute! Red is my favourite colour, too.
Happy Baking!
