What's in a name? Sometimes a lot. In the case of melting moments, the name says it all.
Melting moments have been very popular in Australian cafes for a couple of decades. They are two shortbread discs, joined by a frosting (or icing as we Aussies would call it).
These particular melting moments are passionfruit-lemon. The shortbread is infused with lemon zest and held together by a delicious frosting made with passionfruit pulp and lemon juice.
They are almost as beautiful to look at as they are to eat, so they are perfect as gifts for your friends. If you do happen to give them away, your generosity will be long remembered.
