Cookie Jar – Chocolate Malted Cookies

The cookie jar is full again. This time with Chocolate Malted Cookies, a recipe I’ve had for years that I got from a Taste of Home magazine.


Cookie Jar

Here’s the recipe:

1 cup butter-flavored shortening (I used 1 stick of butter and 1/2 cup shortening)

1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar

1/2 cup malted milk powder

2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 egg

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks (I used chips)

1 cup (6 ounces) milk chocolate chips

In a mixing bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients; beat for 2 minutes. Add egg. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chunks and chips. Shape into 2-inch balls; place 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375º for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Yield: about 1 1/2 dozen
