Delicious Custard Slices Recipe

I was deliberating what treats to make for our Ladies bible study this afternoon, and Custard slices are definitely my first choice. They are not difficult to make, and the compliments and oohs and aahhs afterwards will make the effort worth while! They are also low GI, especially for my diabetic friends.
