YO-YO Biscuits with Lemon Cream Filling

Cooper and I made some delicious Yo-Yo biscuits for an afternoon play-date. I used Donna Hays recipe which really easy to make. l don't make these often due to the high fat content but they were a special request, and l can never say no!
The recipe says it makes 18 complete biscuits but l always seem to only get 15.

Yo-Yo Biscuits by Donna Hay

175g butter, softened
30g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
135g plain Flour, sifted
25g corn-flour, sifted

60g butter, softened
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp lemon zest
1 cup icing sugar

Pre-Heat oven to 180 'C
Place butter, icing sugar and vanilla in a bowl with electric beaters until light and fluffy
Fold in the flour and corn-flour until combined
Place the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star shaped nozzle
Pipe 1.5 cm round drops onto a lined baking tray
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden

For the filling cream the butter an sugar together, add the juice and zest. When biscuits are cool sandwich them together with the icing.
