Peanut Sandwich Biscuits with Custard Cream

September 13, 2013

peanut cookies with custard cream

Happy Friday 13th lovelies! I hope you had a good week… I am finally recovering from my cold. I am such a weakling! And I still sound slightly like an old man who smokes a pipe… but hey, don’t people say croaky voices are sexy or something?

So, after a long time of not posting any baked goodness, I thought the combination of peanut butter cookies and custard cream was too good to pass up. Last night I went for waffles at a place called Cassonade on Oranianstrasse in Berlin and had an amazing Lutticher waffle with apple sauce and nutella. Some people think that’s a disgusting combo, but those who think that haven’t tried it! While I am trying to cut down on my insanely high sugar intake.. yesterday was a treat day and I thought… why end there. so I baked these at about 11 pm last night and then watched some breaking bad. Thrilling!

peanut cookies with custard creamThese sandwich biscuits are actually pretty easy but after making the dough you do need to cool it in the fridge for about an hour to get it nice and stiff.

      Ooo what were your cookies? I made more last night.. because I wasn’t really happy with the photos of the peanut and custard ones.I am finding this autumn light really unsatisfying.. might have to try more studio like lighting. Did you have a good weekend? x
