  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.

I loved these - great flavour, and the smell when they were in the oven was amazing! It took me about an hour but I haven't baked for a while and have never used a food processor before, although in hindsight I wish I'd had a bigger bowl, as there seemed to be slightly too much for it to cope with. My mixture was quite sticky (and I forgot how big walnuts are meant to be), which made me panic a bit, but I ended up with 29 crispy, golden-brown cookies, so I'm happy.

I have made them twice in the last week and everyone absolutely loves them I always put less sugar in all my baking as they always come out too sweet and I also made them with milk chocolate and also yummy !!!

Just baked these for a group I'll be going to tonight. After reading the comments saying they were very sweet I decided to reduce the sugar content. However, I misread the recipe! So instead of reading 175g, I saw 75g. And I reduced it to 50g! And guess what - they are scrummy! And still rather sweet, actually! I did up the custard powder a bit as I had already cleaned my weighing bowl, so I added about 112g (1.5x75g sachet). But they are delicious, and still really rather sweet!

Delicious. So easy for the kids to help make and really tasty. Made with less sugar and more custard powder and added milk chocolate drops rather than the white. Will be making these again :)

My daughter enjoyed making these. We used fudge pieces as we didn't have white chocolate.
They are particularly good when warm. Very sweet!

I made these yesterday, without the chocolate as I didn't have any...very easy and first class biscuits.

Nice little biscuits - making the dough into smaller than walnut sized balls I made over 50! They didn't spread out much whilst baking so should be flattened before.

Deeeelicous. Don't overbake, they firm up. Bit more custard powder perhaps. Flakes almonds.

These really are as good as everyone says they are! The texture is sublime, soft yet ever so slightly crumbly - yum! I cut the sugar down to 130g which I think was perfect with the white chocolate chunks. You could easily adapt this recipe to whatever you have in the cupboard - I might try adding some chopped undyed glace cherries next time! You need to flatten them quite a lot to get a proper 'biscuit', otherwise they are more like biscuit balls!

Delicious and incredibly easy! They are light and crumbly and really quite moreish. Having read the reviews first, I decided to leave out the white chocolate and I'm really quite glad I did as they are sweet enough on their own. I think the chocolate would make them sickly.

Lovely! Great to make when you've only got one egg as most baking recipes require more! My mixture made 32 biscuits. The ones on the bottom shelf were nicer as they were softer and more cookie-like.

My favourite recipe! I have made these biscuits 6 times now! everyone loves them!

Made these yesterday using gluten free flour as I'm a coeliac! Turned out really nice like a custard cream. Would probably have liked a bit more of a custards flavour. Shared them with work colleagues who all gave me the thumbs up!
