The full moon of the past few days (beautiful) was so inspirational…
Green Velvet Moon Pies
- 160 g flour
- 1 tsp dark cocoa powder
- 0.5 tsp baking soda
- 0.5 tsp cornstarch
- A pinch of salt
- 100 g softened butter
- 100 g sugar
- 55 g brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Green food colouring (Wilton)
- 1 egg
- 0.5 tsp vinegar
- 1 egg white
- A pinch of cream of tartar
- 100 g golden syrup
- 0.5 tsp vanilla extract
Place the golden syrup in a saucepan and bring to boil. Remove from heat.
Whisk the egg white with the cream of tartar until soft peaks form.
Slowly add the golden syrup mixture to the whisked egg white and beat until thick and glossy (5 minutes), finally beat in the vanilla extract.

Melt the chocolate and oil until smooth.
Fill a piping bag fitted with a large round tip with the meringue and pipe a generous amount on the bottom half of the cookies. Top each one with another cookie and gently press down to bring them together.
Place the Moon Pies on a wire rack over and pour melted chocolate on them.
Top with rainbow nonpareils (or other sprinkles) and let cool down.
