Another of Sarah’s Christmas gifts was this cute “Eat Me” stamped cookie cutter. To test it out, she baked up a batch of Custard Creams. They are two custard cookies sandwiched together with a custard buttercream filling. The custard creams are so delicious – and so much nicer that the variety available in supermarkets.
They would be perfect for an Alice in Wonderland Party.
