Made this today with left over puff pastry in fridge.

Used large Pyrex dish. Custard slightly wider than pastry. It cut ok.

Used 180g sugar. Still a bit sweet for us.
Ran out of custard powder so made up difference with more cornflour. Sprinkled sliced almonds on top of glacÚ icing.

Here is pic, in fridge with cling film on top. I think it would make 18 slices.

It's hard though DJ, it makes such a huge batch - best only make it when the house is full of visitors or B & B-ers.

Bumping this, super quick and easy to make. I owed a work colleague A LOT for work he did and know he has a weakness for vanilla slice. I added tinned passionfruit pulp to icing sugar plus a squeeze od lime juice for icing, just wonderful. Enough to share around the office tomorrow.

Made these for a house full of teenagers including some overseas exchange students. They all loved them and ate the lot. Really nice recipe and so easy. Thanks.

I made this with SAO biscuits on the weekend as the temperature was over 40C - way too hot to turn the oven on!
They worked really well, but I was disappointed by the custard as I used a different brand of cornflour and it was quite grainy as a result.
I wouldn't hestitate to use the SAO biscuits again, but will be ditching the packet of cornflour in the cupboard and reverting to my normal brand.

I've heard that using Arnott's Lattice biscuits are a great alternative too.  :)
