This melting moments recipe is based on the superb Cranks recipe. These cookies, made with butter and oats literally melt in your mouth. They are light and incredibly moreish. We love them!
They are easy and quick to whip up. I like to make them into really small cookies because they are so delicate and light.
They look ordinary, but they are actually quite extraordinary!
Usually when we make cookies, we have them on their own as a snack for afternoon tea, but these are so light that I do often include them as part of a full afternoon tea spread.
They don't keep well, however, and they are best eaten within an hour or two of baking.
Store in an airtight container.
I love to serve this Melting Moment Recipe with Sencha Green tea, or Hibiscus. If you want to serve them with a black tea, I would choose Earl Grey or even Lady Grey tea.
As part of an afternoon tea spread, these cookies look really pretty alongside tiny meringues, chocolate dipped strawberries and tiny lemon tarts. Serve with a white chocolate raspberry cake for a really pretty and delicate afternoon tea.
