Custard Crisp biscuit







I've got this receipe in my to do list for the longest time. And every time, I would end up with something else in the bake, and its usually a cake.


However, today, I decided that its time to give my family members a 'deserving' break from my cakes. Or should I say, I was in no mood to bake a cake.


Instead, I worked my hands on baking this custard crisp biscuit.


The easy to follow steps to preparing the dough was a breeze. And if you love anything custardy, you would love the strong aroma of the baking custard, especially when it was almost ready to be out from the oven, ready for its show case, ready for thy bite.


As for the simple lines across the biscuit, it was formed from the use of just an ordinary fork 'impression'. Decent looking right?


Yupz, got thumbs up for this receipe.


Nice.

Hi yan,

As promised, here is the pic of the custard biscuits I baked yesterday - http://i424.photobucket.com/albums/pp329/aquariusgal66/custardbiscuits-2types.jpg

I actually baked 2 versions of custard biscuits - the ones with fork markings is ur recipe. Theyre melt in mouth texture. The recipe for the bigger crinkly ones is taken from here -http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/dessert-recipes/members/custard-biscuits. The texture is crispy outside but slightly chewy in the middle. I added orange zest to ur recipe and omitted the white chocolate in the other recipe. My kids cant decide which recipe they liked better - cos both taste awesome!

Hi Yan, the biscuits look really good. Need to clarify, only ONE TBSP of castor sugar?

Yan said...

hi yuri,

yups just one tablespoon of castor sugar cos the receipe has 120g of icing sugar added. i believe the castor sugar acts as sweetener.
