Vanilla custard biscuits


These cute little golden tinged biscuits may look pretty unassuming but they are absolutely wonderful in their simplicity.

If you’re gentle with the dough and don’t overmix, you’ll be rewarded with biscuits that melt in your mouth.

One is never enough.

Vanilla custard biscuits

250g very soft butter
250g plain flour
70g icing sugar
70g custard powder
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract

Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, stopping as soon as you have a soft dough. (I use the KA, a food processor would do the same job. Or you could mix by hand if you aren’t as lazy as I am.)

Roll the mixture into balls and place on the baking tray, press them down with a fork. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Leave on the baking tray for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Pin me for later…

  1. These would last approximately 0.3 seconds in my presence. And I would definitely get a lot of love from the children. Very dangerous indeed! Thanks for linking with #CookBlogShare

  2. Made these this afternoon. So easy and very tasty. Will be great bagged up for school table sales etc. Might try adding in some grated lemon or lime zest, for a bit of zing!
