Sweeten up your afternoons with these rich caramel biscuits filled with buttery icing.

Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer, until soft and creamy. Mix in the flours, a third at a time, until combined. 

Grease two large baking trays, then dust lightly with flour. Using your finger, mark out 20 x 9cm (3 3/4in) lines on each tray, spaced 4cm (1 3/4in) apart. Put the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1.5cm (3/4in) star nozzle. Carefully pipe out 40 fingers along the marked lines.

Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until golden. Leave on the trays for a couple of minutes to firm up, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

To make the filling, beat the butter and icing sugar, until light and fluffy. Spread a little mixture over half the fingers, then sandwich with the remaining halves.
