Description

This recipe is for the humble custard cream, without the gluten and dairy. The biscuit is lovely and light and crumbly and the benefit of making them yourself is that you control the amount of filling, better than the miserable amount in the shop bought versions!

I used the Organ gluten and dairy free custard powder.

Enjoy!
