Recipe by Syrinx
Lovely little biscuits (cookies?) with a slightly unusual texture. This recipe comes from "The National Trust Book of Healthy Eating" by Sarah Edington, which contains favourite recipes from National Trust properties in England and Wales - but I can't see anything particularly healthy about this recipe! :-) Very tasty, though, and well worth trying. The biscuits are named after a place near the country house called Wallington, where these biscuits are apparently served in the National Trust tearoom.
- 6 ounces butter (175g)
- 3 ounces icing sugar (75g)
- 6 ounces plain flour (175g)
- 2 ounces custard powder (50g)
Directions See How It's Made
- Cream the butter and icing sugar (which I believe is also known as powdered sugar or confectioners sugar) until light and fluffy.
- Add the flour and custard powder, and mix to a firm dough.
- Take spoonfuls of the mixture and roll into balls about the size of a walnut.
- Place the balls on a greased baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork.
- Bake at 350F (180C) for 10 to 15 minutes, until lightly golden.
- Cool on a wire rack.
