Custard cream is a type of biscuit popular in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Its structure is that of a sandwich, with a creamy, custard-flavored center between two flat biscuit layers. Traditionally, the filling was buttercream (which is still used in home-made recipes) but nowadays cheaper fats have replaced butter in mass-produced biscuits. The filling tastes of vanilla and as such is more akin to the taste of custard made with custard powder than egg custard.
