Custard Cookies

Servings : 40 cookies

Tiny and delicious bites of the most melt-in-your mouth, crumbly cookies ever!! Easy to make, and they taste outstanding!


  • 2 cups all-purpose/plain flour
  • 1/2 cup custard powder
  • 1/2 cup pure icing sugar
  • 250gm unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence


Bring the butter to room temperature. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C.

If you have a food processor, mix the butter with icing and vanilla. Process for a couple of minutes or until well combined. You can use a hand-mixer.

Add the flour and custard. Pulse until JUST well combined. Do not over-process coz then your cookies won’t have a fine delicate crumbly texture.

Shape as desired and bake on greased trays! (12-15minutes)

I rolled teeny balls with my hands, placed them on the tray and flattened them slightly with a fork. Dip the fork in flour to avoid it sticking to the cookies. If the cookies crumble or crack during shaping, add a few drops of milk and try again.
