These custard butter cookies are an old fashioned favourite for festive seasons like Chinese New Year and Hari Raya in Malaysia. Daisy shaped cookies are one of the most customary cookies served up in the 1970s and 1980s during the festive seasons. The commercially available gluten version of these cookies are now available all year round.  There are many variations of this cookies, the most common ingredients for these modest cookies are normally butter, flour, sugar and eggs and sometimes custard powder is used to enrich the flavour and colour of the cookies. Diced Maraschino cherries or diced candied cherries are placed on top of the cookies.

Gluten Free Daisy Custard Butter Cookies Biscuits

Daisy custard butter cookies are conventionally shaped like a daisy flower. Due to the availability of different types of piping nozzles available, there are many different flora shapes invented. In addition, there are also many names given to these cookies, they are called cherry cookies, piping biscuits or cookies and custard cookies. For my gluten free recipe, I am using gluten free self-raising flour, gluten free and vegan custard powder, caster sugar, vegan butter and diced dried cherries (substitute for diced Maraschino cherries). This recipe is gluten free, vegan, dairy free, soy free, nut free and egg free. This is definitely at the top of my list of favourite Chinese New Year cookies and they are so easy to make. Daisy custard butter cookies are also perfect as gifts for family and friends during the festive seasons.
