Wallace Cookies (Condensed milk cookies)

June 1, 2011


Seriously, these are the cookies of my dreams. And I feel like the world needs to know about them.

Crispy on the outside, but amazingly chewy inside. And tell me… who here hasn’t thought about drinking condensed milk from the tin at least once in their life.


… Or maybe that is just me.

I have to thank my friend Fi for so generously allowing me to divulge this secret family recipe of hers. Fi made Wallace cookies once for our annual Christmas picnic, and our entire friends group has been obsessed ever since.

As for the name “Wallace Cookies”? Legend has it that Miss Fi was trying to think of a name for her famous cookies, when a coworker suggested Wallace as a good name. If you ask me, the milky colour of the cookies reminds me of the only other Wallace I know:

I duno. I thought my brain was going somewhere with this.

ANYWAY. On to the recipe!

Wallace Cookies

125g butter
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon milk
¼ teaspoon vanilla essence
1 ½ cup self raising flour, sifted
1 packet of vanilla instant pudding
3/4 can of condensed milk

Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy.
Add the milk, vanilla essence and condensed milk, and mix well.
Fold in the sifted flour and instant pudding mix until well combined.
Now you can either roll out the dough onto a floured board (the dough will be very sticky, so be gentle!) and cut out shapes, or press the dough into circles by hand. Place these on a lined baking tray. Beware, the biscuits will grow a lot in the oven, so make sure you space them apart.
Bake at 180ºC until golden. (5 – 10 min) They’ll be really soft at this point, but don’t worry – just transfer them to a cooling rack and they’ll crisp up in no time.




Thanks so much for your brilliant recipe Fi! I’ll definitely be making these again!

      I heart wallace and gromit! If only these cookies had cheese in them… then the real Wallace would approve.
