CUSTARD BISCUIT

175g butter (6oz)

1 and 1/4 cup sifted self raising flour

1/2 cup icing sugar

3/4 cup sifted custard powder

Cream butter and icing sugar. ( I use a Magimix food processor)

Add sifted flour and custard powder. Let it process until it forms a dough.

Roll into small balls the size of a marble and place on a greased baking tray.(I use a baking tray lined with baking paper which I then grease lightly using Frylight spray).

Press each ball down with a fork dipped in icing sugar.

Bake at 180 C for 10 minutes.

Please keep an eye on them as they must not change colour too much!!

Cool completely before sandwiching together with the rhubarb icing.

RHUBARB ICING

Roast 1 stick of Rhubarb (about 70g) cut into portions for about 20/25 minutes at 180C.

When cool, puree in a food processor. Add 60g of butter and 200g of icing sugar as well as 1/2 tsp lemon juice. Adjust the icing sugar to make a firm icing. Add a dash of pink food colouring to get that light pink colour.

Place in the fridge to firm up whilst waiting for the bisuits to cool.

Sandwich the cool biscuits together .

VARIATION: CHOCOLATE CUSTARD CREAMS

Sandwich with melted dark chocolate  which has been melted in a double boiler.You may roll the sides with 100’s and 1000’s sprinkles.

These will be eaten so quickly that be prepared to make another batch!

Enjoy👏🍪
