Julia's Challenge-Winning Melting Moments


I'm not sure why they are called Melting Moments, but these little biscuit sandwiches filled with vanilla icing and tart jam won Julia Taylor an early challenge on Masterchef Australia series 4, the judges fell in love with them. Did you watch the finale? Julia lost to Andy Allen but she really didn't lose, she was surprised to find out she would receive $15,000, and then patissier extraordinaire Adriano Zumbo offered her a paid apprenticeship, which she excitedly accepted and is having a fantastic time with, according to her twitter. Her goal is to learn as much as she can and then open her own pastry shop. I watched the series religiously with my daughter and we were both rooting for Julia to win, she is as focussed and disciplined as she is tall and blonde.

She's since set up a fantastic website and she shares her recipes including the Melting Moments, offering tips to help us from making rookie mistakes or to fine-tune techniques. Thanks Julia!

Ahhh Melting Moments, it has been years since I have made those! Must get the Be-Ro book out and find the recipe again as they are truly delicious and definitely buttery and as melt-in-the-mouth as biscuits can be :-)

What a fantastic prize and it sounds well deserved :-)
