Mother’s Day Melting Moments

I just loooove home made Melting Moments especially combined with a nice warm cup of tea and a good book.

These melting moments do actually melt in you mouth and are such a delicious morsel of yumminess!!!

I like to give these delicious biscuits to someone special on Mother’s Day which allows them to take time out for themselves indulging in some “me time” and these delightful biscuits.

Most mum’s spend so much time working, keeping the house neat & tidy and cooking family meals that they don’t usually have enough time to make treats like these biscuits.  They are a perfect Mother’s Day treat which you can make on your own or even enjoy the fun of making them with the kids.
