6oz of butter, 6oz flour, 2oz of sugar and 2oz of custard powder is all you need to make one of Britain’s favourite snack time treats. Custard Creams have been one of the nation’s favourite biscuits since Victorian times, and while this recipe is not the same as store bought – they’re just as addictive. Using icing sugar instead of caster sugar and the high quantity of butter make these biscuits very short and fine in texture and the perfect delivery system for the butter cream. If you want to go custard crazy – you can also put a little custard powder into the butter cream filling.
