Very excited that everyone seems to like this recipe!

I recently made some for a school fund raiser, sold each slice for $3 a piece, and people were coming back for more.

I am about to make with lattice biscuits as I have run out of pastry. I think they will probably be sweet enough without icing. Will see how they go.

Great to hear from you funnyfarm - I love this slice! I am dying to make it again but I'm too scared because I know I'll just eat it!

I know what you mean! I try to only make it when I am going somewhere, that way I can't eat the whole lot!

A friend of mine has frozen it and says that it freezes well. I must try it one day as it would be great to be able to wrap and freeze in portions.

Awesome if it can freeze, DH loves it for work lunch boxes. Looking forward to hearing from anyone who freezes it - or I'll try it next time I make some.  ;D

Am going to make these for lunches, am going to use Sao biscuits as that is how I always made them.  I like Sao biscuit better than pastry.

funnyfarm, they are amazing! The custard is the perfect consistency and the Sao biscuits fitted perfectly in the square Tupperware container as well.  A 5/5 recipe, thank you for sharing  ;D

Good to know about the Sao's knittercook, as the lattice biscuits were a bit disappointing. They didn't really stick to the custard like the pastry does, and were not a great fit for my tupperware container. I will definitely give the Sao's a go if I don't have pastry on hand next time.

Thank you very much for the recipe.

I only put 200 g sugar in - quite sweet enough!

But I found the custard too thick for my taste - it immediately set to a jelly-like almost rubbery consistency - I will try it again with less cornflour - perhaps 100g thickener altogether - 50g custard powder and 50g cornflour with the 2 eggs should be enough for the almost 1 litre of milk, I think. ;)

I'll be back...

Juanita did you add the butter at the end? The butter is really important as it seems to stop the custard from having that horrible rubbery texture. I learned that when I forgot to add it one time.

Made these yesterday, a major hit  ;D, I went passed the bakery's and they were charging $4.50 for one, knew I had seen this recipe somewhere and was wrapped I didn't need to buy ingredients as I had everything. The best part was they tasted and looked just liked the bought ones, so yummy  :D

Made these yesterday with Lattice biscuits instead of pastry and they were a huge hit.  Thank you for posting the recipe.

I succumbed, and made this last night  :).
Left overnight to chill, so looking forward to tasting and cutting up later.
