Malted Milk Sandwich Cookies

I'm not very fond of making rolled out cookies, it takes too long to make since I have to chill the cookie dough for quite sometime to get that more pronounce grooves and sometimes time is something I don't have. This weekend was a treat, Saturday (April 9) was a celebrated holiday here, there are no classes and no work, it's National Heroes Day. With enough time in my hand, I got the chance to make Malted Milk Sandwich Cookies from the book Baked Explorations. Malted Milk are hard to find nowadays, that's why whenever I see some available in my local supermarket aisle, I quickly grab some and hoard it like crazy! :D
The cookies baking smells so good! I couldn't wait to eat them! Though I couldn't nibble on one while waiting for the others to finished because they should be in pairs to make them sandwiches. The filling itself is soft and not too sweet I cut back the sugar by a cup. I light handedly pipe swirls of the filling on each cookie fearing it might be cloyingly sweet. Each cookie has that great contrast between the cookie and the creamy filling, just like a Golden Vanilla Oreo. I store them in the fridge since I fear that the filling will spoil due to our hot climate here.


I'm a nine to five pencil pusher who loves to play with flour and paper during my free time. Dreams of going to Europe and eat croissants and make pastries all day long!


  1. you are smart to horde malt when you see it! i can never find it! these look fantastic!

  2. They look amazing! I can imagine how yummy they are! My dad is a big fan of malted milk...where do you find over here? :)

  3. The last time I found malted milk was in the supermarket aisle near the coffee and creamer section. So whenever I get the change to go to supermarket I always drop by that aisle to check if there are stocks of malted milk

  4. I love the cookies.
