Custard Cream Hearts and Button Biscuits

I came across a recipe in Nigella's Feast {which you can now get in a kindle edition}for Custard Cream Hearts in the Valentines section. Ever since I saw them, I knew I had to make them. I think it was the seduction of the Birds custard powder! They are absolutely pimpsy easy to make in a food processor or kitchenaid.

The recipe is reproduced here by Rolling Pin Tales. I made a couple of adjustments to the recipe:

  • I replaced the 50g of butter and 50g of vegetable shortening with 100g butter
  • I put all the ingredients in the processor at the same time {I misread the recipe} but they seem fine for it.

To make the "button" biscuit I pressed the edge of a medicine dosage thing in and poked either two or four holes with a cocktail stick in the centre.

The hearts that I made are extremely tiny - you can pop it in your mouth whole! I used the cocktail stick to pinprick the edge of the heart, as Nigella herself does.

  1. They look yummy
    I often mis-read recipes but they turn out fine!
    Always ultra careful on seasoning and spices though
