Custard Slices with Cream Crackers

Custard slice Custard Slices with cream crackers

I’m typing my recipe on here because recently I lost it for a few months (all my recipes are on index cards and I have been known to mislay them).  This recipe was given to me by a work colleague Dorene about 10 years ago and it is a big hit in my home.  They are easy to make and the filling is deliciously creamy.  I have been known to use a batch as bait to lure my older children around for a visit.  Yesterday I made them to take to a housewarming party at my eldest Daughter’s new home.



1 packet cream crackers                                                                        ICING

1 litre milk                                                                                               400 ml Icing Sugar
