Eggless Custard Cookies / Yo-Yo Cookies / Custard Sandwich Cookies


                   This melt in mouth cookies are made out of custard powder with out eggs.. Custard powder is not actually custard which has been dried into a powder. It's mostly a starch that has been colored yellow, sweetened and flavored. Mostly the starch is from corn flour or tapioca or sago.

       Custard Powder was invented by Alfred Bird in Birmingham, England in 1837 for his wife who couldn't eat eggs (click here to get more info). He began marketing it across the UK in 1844 which was very famous now and good substitute for Eggs.

         This delicious cookies are mostly available in many bakeries with swirl shape topped with jam or cherry at the center.  You can enjoy this cookies as plain or with any filling  and it is also addressed as YO YO Cookies.  Sharing this recipe for Day 2 month long Blogging Marathon # 51.
