Homemade Custard Creams

Print Friendly

If you like custard creams, then you will just love LizzieB’s home-made versions made with real proper custard! They are made with a white chocolate/buttercream filling, and will keep for up to three days in an airtight container stored in a cool, dark place. Also try our Custard Cream Truffles. Also try LizzieB’s Bourbon Biscuits and our Peanut Butter Jammy Dodger recipe. 

INGREDIENTS

MAKES 15 BISCUITS (APPROX.)

FOR THE BISCUIT
  • 50g butter
  • 50g sugar
  • 100g flour
  • 10g custard powder
  • Milk (for blending)
FOR THE FILLING
  • 25g white chocolate (or buttercream)
  • 1 tbsp custard powder
  • 30g icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
METHOD

1           To make the biscuit, cream together the butter and sugar, then add the flour and custard powder and mix until it resembles sandy breadcrumbs. Add a little milk to form a dough.

2           Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before cooking.

3           Preheat the oven to 160°C. Remove the dough from fridge, place on a lightly floured surface and roll out into a large rectangle about 3mm deep.

4           Cut out smaller rectangles than those used for the previous recipes; mine were about 4.5cm x 3.5cm, but you can determine your own size based on how big or small you want your final biscuits. Cut them out in pairs, each the same size.

5           Place on a lightly greased baking tray or greaseproof paper and bake for 12 minutes.

6           Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool down and crisp up.

7           While they are cooling, make the filling by placing the white chocolate, butter and custard powder in a pan, then heat gently over a low heat. Once melted, stir well to combine, then remove from the heat and beat in the sugar until you have a thick paste.

8           Spread a little of the paste on half of the biscuits, then top with the other halves, pressing gently, then leave them to cool completely.
