Custard Powder Cookies

 
I am not sure if this is a successful or failed attempt of custard powder cookies. My end product looked so different from 'My Cookbook'. I swear I followed the recipe step by step but why is my cookie dough so sticky? I can't roll them into small balls at all & they spread like wild fire during baking =P Anyway, I am glad that they still turn out to be very yummy. Phew.... thank god, I don't have to feed the cookies to 'Mr Dustbin' =)
