Recipe: Fish Finger Cookies and Custard
Food is a staple of the game table. One works up quite an appetite hurling the 2d6! It’s just one of the reasons that we decided to start sharing our favorite Doctor Who recipes here on the blog. Every player has their own traits, attributes, and tastes, however, and agreeing on the ideal snack isn’t always easy. Thus far we’ve featured recipes for notable apertifs and hors d’oeuvres. If the Jelly Babies that garnished our most recent cocktail appealed to your sweet tooth, then you’re more apt to go straight for afters. Once the pizza and the crisps have been cleared away, it’s time for dessert!
Undoubtedly the most delicious tidbit featured during our recent Doctor Who marathon was this beautiful recreation of a concoction that should be instantly recognizable to any fan worth his or her credentials. Fish fingers and custard. Is there a more iconic dish in the whole of the canon? Given the gusto with which the Eleventh Doctor gobbled up his post-regenerative repast in “The Eleventh Hour,” who among us has not been tempted to have a taste? Not all of us share his rather unique cravings, however. For those with more pedestrian palates, this deceptive recipe swaps fish fingers for a vanilla cookie baked from confectionery sugar, salt, baking powder, flour, vanilla extract, almond extract, egg, and butter. The vanilla biscuits are then breaded in graham cracker crumbs as a clever camouflage. The resulting dessert is lovely to look at, fun to eat, and positively delicious.
