Nutty Chocolate Chip Malt Cookies

Diane M.


I love chocolate chip cookies, and these are some of my very favorites! The secret ingredient, malt, will have people asking what went into these cookies! I love my cookies soft and chewy, and these definitely fit the decide if you'd like nuts in them or not...I like pecans.(this pic was taken w/o nuts)

We LOVED the addition of malted milk powder in these cookies! It made each bite special. These would be a great choice for a unique after-school snack or bake sale treat. The Test Kitchen
