Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line 2-3 baking sheets with baking parchment. Put the butter and sugar in a food processor and whizz until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix well. Sift together the flour and custard powder, then tip into the bowl and pulse to mix into a dough. Scrape out the food processor and work the chocolate in by hand.
  2. Roll the dough into balls a little smaller than a walnut, then place on the baking sheets, a little apart to allow for spreading. Press each biscuit down lightly with your fingers.
  3. Bake for 12-15 mins until lightly golden. Remove and cool on a wire rack.

these biscuits are soo yummy. I will bake them 4th time today, everyone I gave them is asking for recipe and cant stop complementing on them. They are also easy to make and kids love to help. Super cookies :) Im using usually about 130g sugar, otherwise they are a bit too sweet.

These are simple, easy and oh so delicious. Our kids love them and we've made them for family celebrations and they are very popular. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

I put a second egg in because the dough was too dry. Added less sugar 150g, which was plenty. I added walnuts and milk choc pieces, The biscuits took a little longer to dry out/cook. Chilled the mix before blobbing the biscuits out to cook because it is easier to handle that way. They are delicious! Will make them again.

baked these one friday after work as a treat, they where fantastic. Very easy and quick to whip up in a food processor.
I added about 15g more white chocolate chips only becuase i had a bag of 100g in the cupboard, worked very well.
Be carefull with timing as these can burn very qucikly. make sure when they come out they have a slight bounce as they harden up when cooling.
Family loved them! will make again very soon.

Easy and quick. Tastes very sweet (obv!) and you can hardly taste the choc. I might try it next time with some dried fruit instead of the choc.

Made these for the first time to test my new mixer, gorgeous! Couldn't find my vanilla bottle but still taste lovely. 5 days on and only a couple left! Nom nom!

Delicious! Tip: cut back the sugar, increase the white choc chunks, and add equal amount of cranberries. Amazing!

Awesome and quick recipe. I opted to make massive cookies instead of 25 small ones.

These were nice biscuits and very quick and simple to make. Very tasty too but I'm not convinced by the texture. They didn't spread at all so the first batch were much too thick. I would make these again (my husband loved them!) and will make them smaller and flatten them out more next time.

I like thinner, crispy biscuits. A good trick is to flatten them after they've gone into the oven. Just keep an eye on them and when you see them starting to get really puffy (maybe 5-6 minutes) open the oven and gently press each one down using a fish slice or a metal spatula.

These came out perfectly, lovely texture and flavour. I drizzled some melted white chocolate over the top too. I was just slightly disappointed that you couldn't really taste the custard.

Please correct ingredient list to read 'custard powder' not 'custard'.

Not bad

At the risk of sounding like my teenage daugther .. these cookies are awesome!! Yes, they're sweet - the custard powder doesn't flavour them but gives them a lovely crunch (for days after they are made!), and they are a lovely golden colour. Such a doddle to make, and sooooo delicious to eat! I'm risking the wrath of my family this weekend though and trying a different recipe just for a change - although the Custard & White Chocolate Biscuit recipe will be staying in my "favourites" file to make again very soon.

These were ok but I won't make them again. They taste lovely but the texture isn't the best - even after a couple of days.

Just made these today. Easy to make and came out lovely. Took 12 minutes in my oven.

I adjusted the ingredients on reading some comments, only used 100g sugar, used 100g custard powder and about 130g white chocolate chunks. I used a bar white chocolate that I chopped into chunks, next time I would either use chocolate drops or make the chunks a little less big. Might add a little more custard powder aswell as don't think they taste overally of custard, but it does give it a nice flavor. I think noway they need to have 175g sugar would make them very sweet.

I will defiantly make again though and add different chocolate drops. Hoping to hold out and make some last a few days as people say they tend to be at their best then........we shall see though if they last that long!!

Such a simple and quick recipe. I think I broke the white chocolate up a bit too finely as the chunks work well in the cookies. They were definitely appreciated by my colleagues, polished off in less than a day!

Delicious! Will definitely be making these again! Don't be put off if you don't have a food processor. The mixture came together nicely with a wooden spoon (as long as your butter is soft)
