Custard Melting Moments cookies are a delicious, buttery shortbread cookie that are melt-in-your-mouth tender. The cookies are made with a mixture of butter, icing sugar, cornflour, and all-purpose flour, along with a hint of vanilla extract and custard powder, which gives them a distinctive custardy flavor.
To make the cookies, the butter and icing sugar are creamed together until light and fluffy, then the remaining ingredients are added and mixed until a dough forms. The dough is then rolled into small balls and flattened slightly with a fork.
The cookies are baked in the oven until lightly golden, then left to cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, the cookies are sandwiched together with a filling made of butter, icing sugar, and custard powder, creating a delicate and creamy center.
Custard Melting Moments cookies are a popular treat in Australia and New Zealand, and are often served with a cup of tea or coffee. They make a great addition to any cookie platter or as a sweet snack for any time of day.
