Growing up I loved chocolate malt milkshakes. It has been years since I have allowed myself to have one, probably a big mistake right? Live a little. I’ll put it on my bucket list. If you search for cookie recipes with malt you will find a lot, so this is not a spectacular new idea, it’s just my way of doing it. Don’t you love that about cooking/baking? There is a science to mixing certain ingredients to attain a specific result (Alton Brown can tell you all about that). But, is there a “right” way to make something? I say no, there are lots of different ways and we figure out our own and go with it, that makes it fun and exciting. This is basically my favorite cookie recipe with a few changes to take my taste buds back to the past.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup butter flavor shortening
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2¼ cups flour
1/2 cup Ovaltine Chocolate Malt powder
1½ tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chopped malted milk balls
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°. Cream butter, shortening, brown sugar, and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Mix together flour, Ovaltine chocolate malt powder, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Stir in chopped malted milk balls and milk chocolate chips. Drop by cookie scoop onto cookies sheets and bake for 9-10 minutes. Makes about 45 cookies.
