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.
