They included one of the recipes for these sweet biscuits so I thought I'd add that in for you.

6oz (180g) butter
2oz (60g) icing sugar, sifted
6oz (180g) plain flour
2oz (60g) custard powder
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
2oz (60g) butter
½ cup icing sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
2 teaspoons milk
Preheat oven to 160°. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Sift flour and custard powder 3 times, then mix into butter and sugar mixture. Stir in vanilla essence.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Roll large teaspoons of mixture into balls and place on tray. Press biscuits down lightly with a fork.
Bake on the middle shelf for 15 to 20 minutes. Watch that the underside does not colour too much.
To make filling, cream butter and sifted icing sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla essence, then gradually add milk., beating well. This mixture makes enough filling for 30 Yo-Yo Biscuits, which is double the Yo-Yo Biscuit recipe.
