Quick Custard Squares.

These can be made in about 30 minutes if you are quick. We use cream crackers instead of the pastry. 

Quick Custard squares
·      Loaf tin
·      Baking paper to fit
·      Sharp knife
·      Mixing bowls
·      Wooden spoon
·      Whisk
·      Pot
·      Measuring cups/spoons
6 plain square cream cracker biscuits eg (Huntley and Palmers)
4 Tbsp custard powder
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup Icing sugar
2 tsp passionfruit pulp
1 1/2  tsp hot water
Line loaf tin with the baking paper.
Use 6 (3 bottom, 3 top) square crackers to line a loaf tin.
Mix custard powder to a smooth paste with a little of the milk.
Separately heat the rest of the milk then add the sugar.
With a whisk, stir in the custard powder paste and continue to heat and stir until boiling and thickened. Remove from heat and add vanilla essence then pour custard over crackers.
Top with remaining crackers, leave until cool, then refrigerate until quite cold and set.

Combine the icing sugar with passionfruit pulp and hot water and mix until smooth.
Spread over cooled crackers after they set.

Place back into the fridge. Cut into squares when set.
