Take the good old Iced VoVo, the iconic Australian biscuit of our grandparents' generation. Make it round instead of rectangular, pile on lots of fresh soft marshmallow, coconut and homemade raspberry jam, and I defy you to find a better biscuit for a cup of tea.
Note To make moon pie biscuits, prepare as above, but pipe marshmallow around only six biscuits, then top each of these with a teaspoonful of blackberry or boysenberry jam, instead of raspberry jam. Put the other biscuits on top and allow to firm for 30 minutes, then dip the biscuits in a melted chocolate mixture. This recipe is from Sweet Envy ($45, hbk) by Alistair Wise and Teena Kearney-Wise, published by Murdoch Books, and has been reproduced with minor GT style changes.
