Someone around here had a hankering for malted milk. That was 3 years ago. The jar of malted milk is only missing about 1 tablespoon of powder. Not as good as you remember it as a child? When I saw this recipe for malted milk cookies, I jumped at it. Hmmm...more like sauntered. Two ounces of malted milk powder used up. Only 10 more ounces to go.

Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

From thepioneerwoman.com
Makes 36 cookies


  • 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 Instructions
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.

Not a "malt" person, but I can eat these. They are growing on me.

I'm not a malt person either, although our canister does have to be replaced occasionally, because someone else likes it.

As far as the beans in the strawberry ice cream go, I *think* I could taste them a little, but only because I knew they were in there. I used some plain old dry white beans that I had cooked up for baked beans on Memorial Day. I just finished off the package, so there were more than I needed for the barbecue. Hope this helps!
