I love baking, more than I love cooking actually. I also love treating my clients that come to me, for their nail “therapy” with a little treat. Often, even the ones on diet cannot resist a delicious cappuccino and of course, a sweet treat, like these Custard Cream Biscuits made with love by me.

My 9-year-old son loves custard biscuits but without the cream . I did make him a batch last week and nobody else wanted to eat them as it didn’t have the cream in between. So this time round I decided to make the Custard Cream Biscuits with cream filling, it is so delicious.

This was so much fun to make, took me a bit of time as I have a very small oven so had to bake them in batches but it was so worth the wait and the effort. I used a little tool I found at the baking supply store, which is actually meant to be used with fondant but it worked amazingly well with these biscuits. It was the prettiest biscuits I made in a while.

These Custard Cream Biscuits are also lovely as a gift, get a pretty box or tin, pop in some tissue paper and put a ribbon around it and you have the perfect gift made with love. I wouldn’t mind someone giving me a gift that puts a smile on my face.

Keyword baking


  • 250 gram butter at room
  • 1/2 cup/125ml icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup/125ml custard powder
  • 1 & 1/2 cup cake wheat flour you may not need to use all of the flour
  • 65 grams butter
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 tspn vanilla essence
  • 1 tspn fresh cream or milk


  • Sift flour and custard powder separately and set aside. Cream butter and sugar well
  • Add custard powder and mix, then add the flour a little at a time. You may need more or less. Mix well until it forms a soft, pliable dough
  • If you have a tool like the one I've used, you need to roll out the dough on a flat surface. Press the tool onto the dough so it forms the design on the dough. Use a small round cutter or the back of a piping nozzle and cut into rounds.
  • Place cookies on a lined baking tray and bake at 160 deg celcius for 15 to 20 minutes. Allow them to cool once removed from oven.
  • Beat the butter, icing sugar and vanilla until light and creamy. Add a little milk or fresh cream if icing is too thick. Sandwich the cookies together with the filling.
