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.

Mine lasted only 2 days they were so popular. Have just made some more. Very straightforward to make. Delicious!

Delicious and easy to make. I love custard cream biscuits and I love white chocolate so these were perfect for me, although I know some would find them sweet due to the white chocolate. Very moreish and desperately trying to ignore that they are in the cupboard...! Would definitely make again.

Lovely biscuits, very light and crunchy. Couldn't taste the custard very much, though, will make again and increase amount of custard powder slightly. Agree with Gerda - no chance of testing if they really will keep for 2 weeks, mine didn't even last one!

Amazingly easy to make, came out exactly like the picture, tasted delicious and kept well. My only tiny quibble was that they were a little too sweet for my taste but my husband loved them.

Easy to make, used an electric whisk as don't have a food processor. Nice custardy flavour comes through. Will try with milk chocolate next time as they were extremely sweet because of the white chocolate.

Lovely biscuits, so easy to make, made it exactly as suggested in the recipe and they came out of the oven as in the picture. I don't think I will ever be able to test the fact they will keep for 2 weeks. Took them to work and everyone loved them.
