custard creams

Today G made these simple biscuits for her snack. 
  • 250g butter  softened
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 225g plain flour
  • 75g custard powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 145C/290F/Gas 2 and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Add the butter and icing sugar to a bowl and beat until smooth, light and fluffy. 
  3. Stir in the flour and custard powder. Beat until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.  
  4. (the original recipe suggests using a piping bag to pipe the batter into individual swirls onto the prepared baking tray). We used a spoon to make rectangles on the baking tray
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until firm to touch. 
  6. Whilst the biscuits cooled we make the icing.

  • 60g butter softened
  • 125g icing sugar

  1. Add the butter to a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Add the icing sugar a little at a time, mixing as you go.
  2. When the biscuits have cooled,  put some butter cream onto the underside of half the biscuits. Place the other half of the biscuits on top.

The only downside was by the end of the week the buttercream had made the biscuit lose it's crunch - although the girls didn't seem to mind!
