OMG, these are my favorite cookies. I was watching The Pioneer Woman one weekend morning and she made this recipe. It looked interesting, so we decided to give it a go. The malted milk powder really gives it a new flavor and makes them so yummy. It is impossible to eat less than three! The only thing I found was using mini chocolate chips rather than regular was they dispersed better throughout the cookie. They are thin, crisp, and chewy, the perfect combination.
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup golden brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 heaping cup malted milk powder
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
- One 12-ounce bag mini milk chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Cream the butter, then add both sugars and cream until fluffy. Add the eggs and beat slightly, then add the vanilla and beat until combined. Add the malted milk powder and beat until combined.
- In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the butter mixture, beating gently until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir in gently.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) on an ungreased baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between the cookies (they spread out quite a bit). Bake for 9 to 11 minutes. The cookies will be very flat and very chewy. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan with a spatula.
You can also bake the cookies at 350 F convection for 7 to 8 minutes.
