Yehh we had a great time thanks Cookie, although we missed Dunedin and Fiordland which was a real shame especially because we were meant to go on an amazing train trip in Dunedin for my youngest son's 4th birthday, but never mind ! They were forecasting 7-8mm swells so they turned the ship around and headed back North to Bay of Islands but it was pouring down there. The rest of the trip was great though and great weather too ! Only wish I could stop rocking now I'm off the ship. I keep bumping into things and leaning on things like I was on the ship ....... it always takes me a couple of weeks for it to go completely ! Strange feeling though !

Made this tonight as my DH needs to "take a plate" to work tomorrow for their Secret Santa morning tea.

This is a great recipe, so easy and tastes great.  Pity I won't get to eat any  :(

I e just made this and forgotten to add the butter. The custard is very rubbery >:(
I haven't iced it yet. Any suggestions on how to save it?

Can you remove custard, reheat it then add the butter as per the recipe ES.

Thanks Judy, that's what I did. I removed the custard, grated the butter into it,  reheated it for a couple of minutes, and then puréed it until it was smooth and silky. It was amazing what a difference the butter makes.
I iced it, and it was devoured at our street Christmas party tonight. I didn't get a chance to take a photo before it got eaten. :)

Success, that's what I like to hear.  Bet there were plenty at your street party - when Katie & I dropped you off recently there were so many kids playing in the street, it was amazing to see.  We have no kids in our cul-de-sac, a couple of teenagers and that's it.

Thought I would bump this even though you shouldn't really make it because you will be compelled to eat it because it is soooo good!

I had family staying with me a couple of weeks ago so made this for dessert one night. My teenage nephews could not believe their luck, my sister now thinks she needs a thermomix!  ;)

Childhood flash back to vanilla slice made with saos and passion fruit icing for the seimming squad BBQ. I thought mum just used a carton of long life custard and was planning to just use EDC custard. Might try this custard instead as DH will prefer it to be like the shop bought one

Here's a photo.

Thermesa, it needs to be very, very thick custard to set. The EDC version wouldn't be thick enough I don't think. I tried previous to this recipe the sao version and the lattice version ......... they don't even come close (sorry) ! This recipe is fantastic.

Mmmmmm yummy isn't it ! I just need to get the perfect size container for it. I use one of those square plastic Sistema containers from Woollies. The pastry sheets are slightly smaller so the custard hangs over a little bit on one side. Not really a problem, I just cut them off and eat those bits lol. The perfect size would be great though !
