Passionfruit Yoyos

Ahhh yoyos, you never cease to fail me. These are my go-to treats for when I need a little sugar hit. They are small enough so you don't feel guilty, and big enough to leave you feeling satisfied. Did I mention how delicious they were? The only thing better than having a yoyo with a nice cuppa, is having a passionfruit flavoured one. 

This recipe creates the perfect crumbly, melts-in-your-mouth biscuit texture while the addition of passionfruit gives the otherwise ordinary yoyo an unexpected twist.
