Chocolate Malted Cookies

Yum
If you haven't gone back to school yet, I am thinking you are about to.  I started back today and my high school girl will begin on Thursday.  Now, I am all for healthy choices after school.  But, a good cookie in a lunchbox or as an after school snack is such a treat!  Don't you remember the days when you would come home from a long day of school and your mom was there with a big hug and a cookie?  How about creating that same feeling with your own kiddos?  Sneak a Chocolate Malted Cookie in your child's lunchbox or have it ready when he or she comes home from school.  Of course hugs are included!






Can't go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie, right?  Add some malted milk powder and you really, really can't go wrong.  You'll get big bear hugs for these cookies!  Trust me!  Even the hubby gave me a hug.  :)



2 1/2 dozen cookies made in 6 easy steps!
I'd say that's worth it!


You know you want a bite...so, don't give them all to your kiddos.  You deserve some too.


originally from Taste of Home Oct/Nov 1995
Ingredients:
1 cup butter flavored shortening
1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup malted milk powder
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp chocolate syrup
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together shortening, brown sugar, malted milk powder, vanilla extract and chocolate syrup.  Add the egg and mix until well combined.  Once combined, add the flour, baking soda and salt.  
For your final mixing step, stir in the chocolate chips.  Shape dough into 2" balls and place on an ungreased  cookie sheet.  Bake for 12-14 minutes at 375 degrees.  Remove from oven and cool on cookie sheet for 2-4 minutes before removing cookies to a wire rack to cool.


The malted milk adds such a delicious dimension to these cookies.
You know what?  Chocolate Malted Cookies will totally measure up...had to put a school pun in there...

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
