Description

A yummy, chewy twist on the ubiquitous chocolate chip cookie.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 Sticks) Unsalted Butter Softened
  • ¾ cups Golden Brown Sugar
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cups (rounded) Malted Milk Powder
  • 1 bag (12 Ounce) Milk Chocolate Chips

Preparation

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.

Optional: Allow to cool completely, then use two cookies to make an ice cream sandwich. Add sprinkles to the sides of the ice cream, then wrap individually in plastic wrap.

I am going to make these tonight – if anyone is wondering where to find malted milk powder – I live in Portland Oregon and I couldn’t find it at Fred Meyer or Safeway but found it at Winco.

I have epically failed three flippin times now to make these….three. What happens, you might ask? Forget an ingredient? over baked?

No no no

Oh no.

Nothing like that… I have bought Malted Milk on three separate occasions to make these. What happens? In a matter of days, I just eat it….yep, right out of the container. Sad. Heaven help me if I actually made them.

Ran out of time & had to bake as cookie bars. Used a 13×9 greased pan & baked for about 45 min. until golden brown. Probably could use a 15×10 pan if you wanted thinner bars. Delicious, buttery, chewy!

I printed this a while back from the Pioneer Woman website. Wish I had thought to come here before making the cookies to see everyone’s input. The cookies have a good flavor, but stick like crazy. Use a silpat because just greasing the pan is not enough.

I baked them last night with my daughter for a picnic today.
They are very good, but a tad too salty. I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I will cut the salt by at leas 1/4 tsp.
Interested in making them again w/less butter as someone said, so they are a bit less flat.
VERY interested in making the ice cream sandwiches!! :o)

These are now one of my son’s favorite cookies (don’t tell his NaNa).

Very good! The major change I made was I used Ovaltine chocolate malt powder…lol. It didn’t change it up too much but just made it more chocolaty. Thanks for sharing!

Soooo good! They come out just as I’d hoped!! This is my new favorite recipe. I may try to throw in some walnuts next time. :)

I committed a cardinal sin by not reading the comments and reviews first. I wish it had stated clearly in the recipe how badly these spread. Either add more flour or bake in a pan as other reviewer’s state. I made these for my boss’s birthday as he likes malt (me not so much.) For me they were overly sweet and yes too salty. Cool them COMPLETELY before taking off the pan – or even with a silpat mat they stick horribly and you will get wrinkly globs of cookie mess! And be careful if baking to get crispy cookies- they start to burn in quickly!

These spread out a lot more than I had expected. Everyone really enjoyed them, though. I used semi sweet chunks instead of milk chocolate and added pecan bits. Next time, I’m going to increase the malt powder and add toffee.
