Biscuit dough

  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar, sifted
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup Healtheries Gluten Free Baking Mix
  • 2 Tbsp custard powder
  • Icing sugar to serve

Raspberry Filling

  • 60g butter
  • ¼ tsp vanilla essence
  • ¾ cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 6 small frozen raspberries, thawed (or any variation of berry) 


15 biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 1600C/1400C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. 
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  3. Sift flour and custard powder into butter mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined and soft dough forms. 
  4. Using 1 heaped teaspoon of dough per ball, make approximately 30 balls (or you can make even smaller balls if preferred). Place on prepared trays leaving room for spreading. Using a fork dipped in gluten-free baking mix, lightly flatten each biscuit until 1 cm thick. 
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on tray for 10 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. 
  6. Meanwhile, make raspberry filling: Using a whisk, beat butter in a bowl until light and creamy. Add vanilla. Whisk to combine. Add icing sugar. Whisk until well combined. Stir in raspberries.
  7. Spread the flat side of 1 biscuit with 1 teaspoon of filling. Sandwich with 1 biscuit. Repeat wtih remaining biscuits and filling. Serve with a dusting of icing sugar.

Serving Suggestions
