Passionfruit Crunchies



Passionfruit Crunchies. This is a bit of a misnomer. This came from a newspaper cut out pasted into one of Nana’s books. I had imagined something well…crunchy. And yet these are not remotely crunchy. Instead, they are melt in your mouth, light, fluffy and tangy goodness. More like a yo-yo or melting moment – or, exactly like a yo-yo or melting moment. At least that’s how mine turned out! These disappeared from the cake stand very quickly!

You will need:

  • 90g sifted icing sugar
  • 185g butter
  • 4 passionfruit
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup cornflour


  • 90g icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • passionfruit pulp to mix

Do this

  1. Cream butter and icing sugar, add passionfruit.
  2. Sift flour, cornflour and salt together twice, gradually add to mixture; blend well.
  3. Drop in small quantities from a teaspoon on to greased trays. (My mixture was quite thick, so I rolled teaspoonfuls into balls and then squashed them slightly when I put them onto the trays).
  4. Bake in moderate oven for 15 minutes. Leave on tray to allow the biscuits to cool.
  5. Join together with passionfruit filling made by creaming together the butter, icing sugar and some passionfruit filling.

    Kate, they look fantastic!
    One recipe I will certainly give a go, it looks pretty simple or is that my ignorance?
    Cheers and keep up the great work,
