Custard Cookies Recipe


Summer vacations are here again and I am delighted that my daughters have started showing interest in learning some cooking and baking. One of the very first things they learned are these Custard cookies. These cookies are really easy to make and are extremely mouth melting tasty. These are eggless cookies and it takes hardly 10 minutes to make the dough and 15 minutes to bake.

    Thank you for the recipe. I’ve been making these cookies for almost a year now and it’s my family’s favourite! I add a bit of cacao powder to one half of the dough and roll it up. Cut slices for a spiral effect in cookies.
