We have a bushy
passionfruit vine at the back of our garden.  Its a small vine, which we
planted to hide a rather unsightly back garden wall.  Its gives us a
beautiful outlook with large 3 pronged waxy green leaves and the most amazing
flowers you will ever see.

Passionfruit flowers
We are right in the middle of passionfruit season
and this morning I noticed that the fruit bowl was overloaded with fruit. A
great time to make some passionfruit cookies.  The recipe I used came
 from the blog, Merci Mamma, which I visit quite often to get ideas
and inspiration for what to cook for family dinners.
This is a really easy recipe to follow and I had 24
golden biscuits made and out of the oven in about 45 minutes flat.  My
husband had been nagging me to join him on a bike ride around the bay, so I did
this while the cookies cooled and then iced them when I returned.
“Pillows of Passionfruit goodness, perfect with vanilla icing”
What you need:
butter room temp
cup caster sugar
egg room temp
cup passionfruit pulp
cups self raising flour, sifted
cups icing sugar
butter room temp (for icing)

What you do:
Preheat oven to 180C and line 2 baking trays with
baking paper 
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then
add egg and mix well
Add passionfruit pulp and beat to combine.
 The mixture might curdle a little, but it will come together when you add
the flour
Fold in the flour until just incorporated
Roll about a tablespoon of dough for each biscuits
and place onto a baking tray.  Remember to space the biscuits as they do
spread a little while cooking and then flatten them a bit with you fingertips.
Bake for 15 mins and leave to cook on a wire rack

Sift the icing sugar into a small bowl.  Add a
capful of vanilla essence, extra butter and 3 or 4 tablespoons of boiling water
and mix till smooth.  Either dip each biscuit into the icing, or ice with
the back of a spoon.
