Custard creams

4oz butter
4oz sugar
1 egg yolk
4oz plain flour
4oz custard powder
drop of vanilla extract
milk to mix

Cream butter and sugar, beat in egg yolk and vanilla, then gradually add flour and custard powder; mix to a stiff dough with milk, knead lightly. Roll out and cut into shapes and bake on a tray for 10 - 15 minutes in a hot oven until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack, and when cold, sandwich together with thick vanilla glace icing.

Perfect with a cup of tea in the garden :))

The 'new' cutter in action? I use a similar recipe, when we have children in the house and let them loose with the cutters, wish we had a tip like yours...
