Eggless Yo-Yo Cookies

Yo-Yo cookies are an Australian favorite made with custard powder and filled with  butter cream. Also known as “melting moments”, these cookies are delicious, buttery and make a fun dessert. Two delicious melt- in- your- mouth cookies are sandwiched with butter cream and these are way less sweet than the American sandwich cookies which makes them a delightful accompaniment to tea or coffee. If you are not in a mood for butter cream filling, nutella or any chocolate based nut butter spread would work just fine. This is a fun way to engage kids in baking and filling their own sandwich cookies, makes for a great rainy day activity too.yo-yo cookies
