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.
