Blogging Marathon# 36: Week 1/ Day 2

Theme: Cookies

Dish: Custard Cookies

For Day 2 of marathon, I have these super simple to make Custard cookies. These are basically cookies flavored with custard powder and hence the name, custard cookies. Not sure what made me look for custard cookies, but I googled for them and found this recipe on BBC Good food site. I recently bought some caster sugar (super fine sugar) and used it in this recipe.

These cookies are easy to make, no freezing or refrigeration of the dough required. Just mix all the ingredients and form into little cookies and bake. I added some mini chocolate chips to half of the dough, so that my choco-loving son will have a share too. With or without chocolate chips, these cookies are great — they just melt in your mouth.

Original recipe used 1 egg which I replaced with egg replacer, but flax meal egg will also work here.
