Yum! An old favourite. You can also sandwich two together to make a custard yo yo biscuit (similar to a melting moment).

I find these go a little soft after day 2. Tasty nonetheless though!

    Do you have a way to make these from scratch? I don’t have custard powder but do have everything for custard.

      No sorry. The powder is what makes these cookies.

    I followed the recipe as above and used the right amount of custard powder however the cookies don’t taste like custard and don’t have a lot of flavour to them at all.
    Do you know why this may be?

      Im not sure sorry. I haven’t encountered this problem. Perhaps different brands?
