Custard Shortbreads

When my last tin of Bird’s Custard Powder was nearing its use-by date, I scoured the internet looking for different ways to use it up quickly, which is how I found these custard shortbreads.

I’m so glad I found them, they’re quick and easy to make, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious, now I’m kind of sad I ran out of custard powder – I need an excuse to get another tin, because I want to make these over and over again.

I recently made a batch for my friend K’s dad to take on his flight back home to the UK, he loved them so much (or appreciated the gesture), he’s promised me a large tin of custard powder when he’s coming back this summer.

The cookies are similar to these Christmas time cookies, with custard powder instead of almond meal, the texture is a little bit more airy and delicate, and the taste is lighter.

They make the perfect snack-time treat, and I’m in love with their bright yellow colour.
