Pacman Custard Creams

Pacman custard creams
When Edd Kimber, winner of the BBC’s Great British Bake-off series, posted a recipe for homemade Custard Creams on his blog, I knew what I’d be baking this weekend. Along with Party Rings, Bourbons, and Jammie Dodgers, the Custard Cream is a classic British biscuit and one that brings back nostalgic memories of growing up and trying to sneak another biccie from the tin.

I decided to make my Custard Creams using Pacman cookie cutters from Firebox (why not, eh?) although I did also make Kimber-style rounds as well (although not quite as neat as Edd’s efforts).

I had a bit of trouble making the filling soft enough as I don’t have a stand mixer so I had to resort to using a bowl, a fork and brute force (plus a touch of not-quite-boiling water). It may be sacrilege to say so, but I think that they actually taste better than the real thing. Thanks, Edd!
