It’s pretty hard to find someone who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie. They’re a classic and a staple for a reason—they’re delicious! What you will find, however, is a multitude of preferences when it comes to those cookies. Some people love thick, chewy cookies, and some people love thin, crispy cookies. I’m partial to toasted pecans in my cookies while others don’t want any nuts near theirs. What we can agree on it this—they’re always room for a great chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I’ve got one of my favorites to share with you today.
These cookies feature an ingredient that isn’t used often in baking, but it really brings something to the party. It’s malted milk, and it makes all the difference. The addition of this ingredient instantly makes the cookies more toasty and complex tasting, but it definitely retains the chocolate chip deliciousness. The finished cookies are crispy on the edges, softer in the center and so good you’ll find it difficult to stop at one.
Chocolate Chip Malted Milk Cookies
2 1/2 cups Flour
3/4 cup Malted Milk Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 sticks Butter, softened
2 Tablespoons Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Butter flavoring
1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
1 cup Dark or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Combine flour, milk powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl using a whisk.
In a large mixing bowl blend the sugars and butter until well combined. Add in eggs, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and butter flavoring. Blend until combined, scraping down sides as necessary.
Slowly add in the flour and malted milk mixture. Mix until almost blended in, then add in chocolate chips. Stir until just combined, taking care not to over mix.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place tablespoons of cookie dough onto prepared sheet pan about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies for 18-20 minutes or until they are set and lightly browned around the edges. Cool on wire racks completely and store any leftovers in an airtight container.
These cookies are perfect with a glass of milk, cup of coffee, or tea! They’re also great for ice cream sandwiches featuring your favorite ice cream! Enjoy!
