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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream the butter and icing sugar (which I believe is also known as powdered sugar or confectioners sugar) until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the flour and custard powder, and mix to a firm dough.
  3. Take spoonfuls of the mixture and roll into balls about the size of a walnut.
  4. Place the balls on a greased baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork.
  5. Bake at 350F (180C) for 10 to 15 minutes, until lightly golden.
  6. Cool on a wire rack.
