Instructions

Cookie Cups:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 2 regular sized muffin tins with cooking spray.
  • Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt, set aside.
  • Beat butter and sugar on med-high until pale and fluffy (approx. 2-3mins). Reduce speed and add eggs (one at a time), and vanilla. Beat until combined.
  • Add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Using a large cookie scoop (3 Tbsp), scoop dough into muffin tins, press down to flatten slightly.
  • Bake for 10-12 mins or until lightly browned and mostly set.
  • Remove from oven and immediately use a small jar or container to press firmly down in the center to create a well. Cool in pans for 10 mins, then place on wire rack to cool completely.

Vanilla Custard:

  • Place 3 cups milk and vanilla bean paste into a medium saucepan. Cook over high heat, stirring often until it just starts to simmer. Remove from heat.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk remaining 1 cup milk, egg yolks, sugar, and cornstarch.
  • While whisking vigorously, slowly pour the hot milk into the egg mixture.
  • Return mixture to saucepan and cook over high heat, whisking constantly, until it thickens and comes to a boil.
  • Pass through a strainer and into a small bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on top of custard to prevent a skin from forming. Place in refrigerator to cool completely.
  • Whisk custard to a smooth texture and pipe into cooled cookie cups. Top with fruit if desired.
  • Store in fridge and serve within two days.
