    ok found it here goes----

    to make custard

    1/2 cup custard powder
    1/2 cup caster sugar
    2 cups cream
    3 cups milk
    1 tspn vanilla essence

    * blend custard powder, sugar and cream in a medium heavy based pan.
    * gradually stir in the milk, then stir constantly over medium heat until custard boils and thickens.
    * remove from heat, then stir in essence
    * place plastic wrap (gladwrap) onto the surface of the custard to prevent a skin from forming.
    * cool completely

    i usually use puff pastry pre cooked for the top and base and add a passionfruit icing which is simply
    1/4 cup passionfruit pulp (you can buy in little tins from coles etc)
    25gm butter
    1 1/2 cups icing sugar.
    combine ingrediants in a heatproof bowl stand over a pan of simmering water and stir until smooth and glossy. remove from heat and spread on pastry with a flat bladed knife. refrigerate for several hours or until pastry softens a little.

    Hey, yummo! I have only tried making vanilla slice once... When I cut it, the custard went everywhere - the pastry was too hard. What's the secret? The custard was fairly firm, it had been in the fridge for a few hours... maybe 4? What did I do wrong ?
    (I'd like to rectify the problem so I can make it again )

    YUMMO Thanks Sonya... so excited to try this... to tide me over, i just made a bit of custard.. will go to shops and when i've made it i'll let you know how i went! sounds GREAT!


    snacks- from what i've heard, it's best to leave it and eat it next day... but i dunno.. i'm no expert! i've tried it a couple of times and i always have issue with soft custard!

    just make sure its in a really airtight container (tupperware is good) maybe let it thicken for a bit longer on a low heat, stirring of course, before letting it cool. good luck girls. im going out to buy the ingredients tomorrow as now my tastebuds are going off!

    I need a Jam Biscuit Drop recipe please

    I have some jam in the fridge that I would like to use and can't get the idea of Jam Drop Biscuits out of my mind but I can't find a recipe anywhere. Somewhere in the recesses of my mind I thought there was custard powder in the recipe.

    Any recipes would be greatly appreciated....

    Hi Ursula. Found you this recipe...

    Thumbprint Biscuits
    3/4 cup butter, softened
    1/4 cup icing sugar, sifted
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    1/4 cup plain flour
    1 cup self raising flour
    1/4 cup custard powder
    1/4 cup milk
    jam, lemon curd or chopped chocolate

    Place the butter, sugar and vanilla essence in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, self raising flour and custard powder. Fold the flour mixture and the milk alternately into the butter mixture.
    Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place them on a greased baking tray. Make a thumbprint in the centre of each cookie.
    Fill each thumbprint hole with a teaspoon of jam, lemon curd or chocolate. Bake for 12 minutes or until biscuits are golden. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

    Hope this is what you were after!

    Oo, that one sounds nice...
    I make jam biscuits with my chocolate chip biscuit recipe (obviously cut out the choc chips and put jam in the middle instead...) Recipe is very sweet, but easy.

    125g butter (or cooking marg)
    1/2 Cup white sugar
    1/2 Cup brown sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla essense
    1 1/2 cups SR flour
    As much jam as you need!

    Cream butter and sugars, add vanilla and egg & beat thoroughly.
    Fold in flour (sometimes I need a smidge more flour than this)
    Roll dough into balls. Press a hole into middle of ball and spoon jam inside.
    Bake in mod oven for about 10mins or until golden.

    You are most welcome Ursula. You have motivated me to make either these or a chocolate cake out of the same book! That is, if she who must be obeyed says it is okay.
