How to make homemade custard creams :)

 



I felt that it was time for a baking post, biscuit time! Everyone has their favourite biscuit to go with afternoon cuppa, and for me it has to be a good old custard cream. I can eat millions of the things, sereiusly once I start, I can't stop!


 
 I was very keen to try making some homemade- somewhat healthier versions of the buscuit tin classic, so I could eat them without so much guilt!
 
I found this recipe online, whilst browsing through Ed Kimber's (winner of Great British Bake off) website, which I would definitely reccomend!
 
There are only five ingredients in this recipe- so don't be afraid to try it!
 
Ingredients
For the Biscuits--- 225g flour--- 50g Custard Powder--- 30g Icing Sugar--- 175g Butter--- 1tsp Vanilla Extract
 
For the Filling---50g Butter---200g Icing Sugar---2tbsp Custard Powder
 
 

 
Step 1--- Put the flour, sugar and custard powder in a blender, and pulse.
 
Step 2--- Once all mixed, add the butter and vanilla extract and pulse until the mixture forms a dough


 
Step 3---  Form a ball with the doudh, and wrap the in clingflim and refrigerate for 40 mins
 
 
Step 4--- On a floured surface roll out the dough so that it is 3-4mm thick
 
Step 5--- Using a biscuit cutter cut out roughly 40 biscuits (so when sandwiched together this would make 20 biscuits).
 
Step 6--- Bake the biscuits in a preheated oven (180C/160C Fan/350F) for ten minutes until just firm.
 
 


The Icing
Step 1--- Cream the butter, sugar and custard powder togther in a bowl
Step 2--- Spoon the icing into a piping bag and squeeze onto the biscuits- or use a knife to spread onto the biscuits
 
 

Step 3--- Sandwich the biscuits together
 
 
Best served once cool and with a hot cup of tea- enjoy! :)

Lots of love, Paloma xxx
