Custard Biscuit Recipe

by Food Like Amma, November 03, 2013

Custard biscuits are fork pressed cookies –comparable to Shortbread and Naan Khatai only more delicate and flavorsome from the use of custard. The main ingredient in custard powder accounts for the soft ‘melt in the mouth’ texture of this cookie, much like melting moments - South Africa's butter biscuit version of  Danish butter cookies. This recipe is egg free and easy to make. This custard  biscuit simply requires butter, flour, custard powder and sugar. Using proportionate amounts of butter and flour result in perfectly pressed biscuits without cracks. I use a ratio of 1 cup butter:1 cup flour: 1/2 cup custard powder.
