Chocolate Chips with an Edge
Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite. So when I was offered a malted chocolate chip cookie today I couldn't possibly turn it down. Oh and I'm so glad I didn't. It was delicious. It looks just like a regular chocolate chip but it has malted milk powder added to the dough. Now if your concerned about where to get the malted milk I found out that it's located in the coffee aisle by the nondairy creamers. Deanna's Famous Chocolate Malted Cookies 1 cup butter flavored Crisco 1-1/4 cups brown sugar 1/2 cup malted powder 2 Tbsp. chocolate syrup 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract 1 egg 2 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate pieces 1 cup milk chocolate pieces In a mixing bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients; beat for 2 minutes. Add the eggand mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the mixture, mixing well. Stir in the chocolate pieces. Shape into 2 " balls and place 3" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for about 15 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes before removing from pan. Makes about 1-1/2 dozen.
