Hold on to your wigs because this is one of the BEST homemade cookie recipes I have made in recent memory. The recipe caught my eye because my husband is known to love anything flavored with malt. I can pretty much predict that he will order a malted milkshake when we go out and get our burger & shake fix. So, I knew he would love these cookies. Not to mention what a treat it was for the 2 little ladies and Sam. This cookie is a really flat, chewy cookie, which I love. And there is such a wonderful, old-fashioned taste to these. If you prefer a more chocolatey cookie, use the chocolate Malted milk powder; original was used for my recipe.
- 1 cup (2 Sticks) Unsalted Butter Softened
- 3/4 cups Golden Brown Sugar
- 3/4 cups Sugar
- 2 whole Eggs
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
- 2 cups All-purpose Flour
- 1-1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1-1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 cup (rounded) Malted Milk Powder
- 1 bag (12 Ounce) Milk Chocolate Chips--(I like to use around 8 ounces)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter, then add both sugars and cream until fluffy. Add eggs and beat slightly, then add vanilla and beat until combined. Add malted milk powder and beat until combined.
Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture, beating gently until just combined.
Add chocolate chips and stir in gently.
Drop by teaspoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Bake less if you want chewy cookies; more if you want crispy cookies.
