Soft, yummy "big" cookies for WW cookies! I got 26 cookies which made them only 2 points plus each. According to the recipe builder on the WW site, if you only get 24 cookies, it is 2 points plus for 1 cookie but 5 points plus for 2. I substituted a small box of instant vanilla pudding for the custard powder. I also didn't have self-rising flour so I used the appropriate equivalents of baking powder, salt and regular flour. At first, they were a little salty. As they sat, that seemed to mellow out a bit. Not sure if it because I use sea salt or if Australian self-rising flour has a different ratio of salt. Next time, I'll use less. I used just a tad more than 8 Tbls. of Land-O-Lake's light butter to get the 120 grams. (Maybe the Australian light butter isn't salted?) The almonds were a nice touch. Would be interested to try the recipe with other pudding flavors and extracts for a variety of flavor combinations. Thanks for posting! I liked having cookies at my party that I could enjoy too without blowing my point allowance for the day!
Very simple and very yummy biscuit. I used diced almonds on the top - they get a lovely roasted flavour.
