  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 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)

Fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly and they were perfect, one of the few recipes where the cookies kept their shape whilst baking and did not spread into pancakes! They taste delicious freshly baked so tomorrow is going to be a dream if they really are better when they are a day or 2 old as others have said. How does anyone know they keep a fortnight? I can't imagine resisting them for that long! Definitely a keeper of a recipe and I'm looking forward to adding my own variations in the future - not that they need it.

These are absolutely delicious biscuits, I don't find them too sweet but I do have a sweet tooth. Really easy to make and I love the addition of the custard powder to the biscuits. The recipe says they keep for a fortnight, I'm lucky if they last more than a few days in my house as they are a big favourite and I'm always being requested to make them!

I was a bit worried that these would be a bit dry but how wrong I was! I didn't find them overly sweet as some people have suggested, but maybe my sweet tooth is getting too resilient! A good, easy recipe, well worth a try!

I've just made these for the first time; and as a lot of other people have commented, they are very sweet but hard to resist all the same! I think the next time I make them, I'll cut down on the amount of sugar, but also add some freeze dried raspberries to give a little added tartness.

I make these all the time, but I do double the amount of custard powder. I have also do them with icing sugar spread on the top, super sweet but makes the biscuits have the moistness that they can sometime lack. I tried them with coconut, although I felt they were a bit dry they went down a treat at my husbands work with a cup of tea!!!
