Just as the name suggests, strawberry rose meltaways have a delicate, melt-in-your mouth texture. These biscuits are made with dried rose petals, and filled with an airy strawberry and rosewater buttercream making them irresistible and full of flavor! We decorated the biscuits with melted milk chocolate and rose petals. Instead, you can also opt to dust them with icing sugar.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Chilling Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 42 minutes

Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 230 g (1 cup / 2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp rose water
  • 125 g (1 cup) all-purpose flour plus some extra
  • 110 g (1 cup) cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 60 g (1/2 cup) powdered (icing/confectioner’s) sugar

For the buttercream

  • 10 g freezed-dried strawberries
  • 80 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 120 g powdered sugar
  • 1 – 2 tbsp rose water

For decorating

  • 60 g (2 oz) milk chocolate, melted
  • dried rose petals

Instructions

  1. Mix the biscuit dough. Using a hand-held mixer, cream the butter, icing sugar, dried rose petals and rose water in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Sift the flour and cornflour on top and stir to combine. Transfer the dough onto clingfilm and spread down flat. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for one hour to firm up.
  2. Preheat the oven. While the dough is chilling, preheat the oven to 160°C (325°F / gas mark 3).
  3. Cut out he cookies. Place the dough on a non-stick baking mat, sprinkle lightly with flour and roll until 1/2 cm (1/4 in). This dough is too soft to transfer it, so it’s best to cut out the biscuits on the mat. Cut out individual rounds with a cutter dipped in flour and remove the excess dough. Chill the biscuits for another 30 minutes.
  4. Bake the biscuits. Transfer the baking mat onto a baking tray and bake the biscuits for 12 to 15 minutes. Let the biscuits cool on a rack.
  5. Make the buttercream. To make the buttercream, add the freeze-dried strawberries into a blender or food processor, and pulse until they become fine dust. In the bowl of a mixer, cream the icing sugar, butter and crushed strawberries until fluffy. Then add in the rosewater and mix until combined.
  6. Fill and decorate the biscuits. Pipe half the biscuit rounds with strawberry buttercream and top with the other halves. Decorate the biscuits with melted chocolate and dried rose petals.

Craft the printable hexagon treat box

Print the printable lid and bottom on DIN A4 or US letter size cardstock or photo paper and cut out the two components along the grey lines. Working with a bone folder and ruler, crease along the grey lines and fold the sides inwards. Put glue on all the flaps that say “Glue”.

You can either use double-sided tape, a strong glue stick, or superglue. To assemble the lid, adhere the sides parts so that a hexagon forms. Repeat this step for the bottom part, too. Now your favor box is ready to be filled with strawberry rose meltaways!

Tip: We also printed the decorative pattern on the back of the printables so the favor box looks pretty on the inside as well.
