2/3 cup plain flour
1/4 passionfruit pulp

Turn out onto baking paper and knead until smooth cut dough in half and roll till 5 mm thick between to sheets of baking paper. Chill for 30 before cutting 4 to 5 cm rounds ( fluted if you have this cutter)
My cookies are 5 cm round unfluted.
Bake for 10 to 12 mins at 160 degrees on a baking tray with baking paper under the cookies. ( until golden on the edges ) ( middle shelf )
Cool completely before making the cream filling.
Beat butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy add the passionfruit juice. If the mixture is till runny add more icing sugar 1/3 or 1/2 cup more.

Pipe cream with a 5mm fluted cookie maker or bag to give a nice edge to the cream filling. Place other cookie on top, dust with icing sugar and serve. ( I refrigerated mine over night in a box to set icing )

Bon Appetite
