My grandmother used to make these custard cookies, needless to say, it is an old time favourite!
150g (10 tablespoons) sugar(icing sugar will give a finer texture to the cookie)
90g (6 tablespoons) custard powder
20ml (4 teaspoons) baking powder
750 g (3 cups) flour(cake/all purpose)
2 eggs (mixed till fluffy)
– Cream butter and sugar
– Add eggs
– Add the rest of the ingredients, but do not overmix(that will have an effect on the texture of the cookies)
– Quickly roll balls of dough and press down with a fork
– Let it cool while making the icing
250g (1 cup) icing sugar
5 ml (1 teaspoon) butter
45ml (3 tablespoons) boiling water
10ml (2 teaspoons) instant coffee powder (or custard powder)
Make a paste with the above ingredients and spread between two cookies like a sandwich.
