Vintage Baking: Custard Kisses
So as another week of Great British Bake Off comes to our screens I thought it would be an idea to whip up an old school favourite – custard kisses. This is another one in my vintage recipe box!
So why not give this vintage recipe a go, I can guarantee they will taste delicious.
Ingredients for biscuit:
175g softened butter
50g caster sugar
50g icing sugar
2 egg yolks (or 1 full egg if you want to avoid waste!)
2 tsp vanilla extract
300g plain flour
Ingredients for the custard filling:
100g softened butter
140g icing sugar
2 tbsp of custard powder (I recommend Birds!)
Heat your oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
Mix the butter, caster sugar and icing sugar, egg yolks (or full egg) and vanilla with a wooden spoon until creamy, then mix in the flour, I recommend you do a bit at a time.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface, then cut, I use a round small scone cutter to ensure they are all the same size. Once you use up all the dough, transfer to a non stick baking tray or sheet. It will take approximately 10 mins to cook.
Leave the biscuits to cool.
Meanwhile, mix the butter, icing sugar and custard powder. Spread a little icing onto a biscuit, then sandwich with another biscuit. Dust with a little more icing sugar.
Sit down, relax and enjoy. If you like the vintage tea set I am using or would like to purchase a vintage cake stand then head over to my Etsy shop.
