Eggnog Custard Slice
  1. Grease a 3 cm-deep, 20 cm (base) square cake pan and line base and sides with baking paper, extending 3 cm over all sides. Place 9 biscuits, trimming to fit if needed, in a single layer, in pan to cover base.
  2. Place milk, thickened cream, unsalted butter, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk cornflour and yolks in a large bowl. Gradually add warm cream mixture to cornflour mixture, whisking continuously until smooth and combined. Return cream mixture to saucepan and heat over medium-low heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until mixture boils and thickens (do not overheat or mixture will separate).
  4. Pour warm custard over biscuits. Top with another layer of 9 biscuits, with the glazed side up. Refrigerate for 4 hour 30 minutes or until chilled and set.
  1. To make the icing, place icing sugar in a large bowl. Pour in melted butter, 1 tablespoon of warm water and the vanilla. Stir until smooth (see notes).
  2. Remove slice from pan and cut slice into squares, using shape of biscuits as a guide.
  3. Spread the icing over the slice pieces and scatter with gold stars.
Tips & Hints:
  • You may need a little more warm water to get a smooth icing consistency. If so, add water gradually (a tablespoon at a time) until smooth.
  • This slice is best left in the fridge for several hours or overnight to allow biscuits to soften and custard to set.
  • Edible gold stars are available in the baking aisle of most supermarkets.
