If there is one little gift you that will sure light a smile on my face, it would be the simple gift of a chocolate chip cookie.  It never fails.  Yet more than just my love for this classic cookie, it’s the gesture that I appreciate most.  You can read about my obsessed reaction to the time I received a hefty bag of the most amazing cookies EVER, the Levain Bakery cookies and about the time my adorable neighbor, Katie, made me cookies here.    

As a result of my inner mush, for a lack of a better word, I tend to think everyone appreciates a cookie so when given the chance, I make them for others too.  Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned in my red velvet cheesecake brownies post that I brought cookies to a Super Bowl party?  Well, these were it.  Just know, before the end of the game, they were ALL GONE!  Luckily I had my fill before the party.

But malt… that nostalgic feeling that washed over you as a kid as you drank a milkshake.  Yea, I still get this feeling even as an adult.  Sometimes, I yearn for it and there’s no shame in that!  So what do I do now to get my inner kid out but may not necessarily want a milkshake?  I use malted milk powder to enhance my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, then dance around with a cookie in each hand like no one’s watching!

Before the party, of course!

Units Scale
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup malted milk powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup + 4 teaspoons (6 oz.) dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels


  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, malted milk powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat butter on medium speed using an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add in both sugars to the butter and beat for another 1 – 2 minutes. Gradually add eggs and vanilla and continue mixing on medium speed until just combined, scraping the sides of bowl (the batter will appear lumpy).
  4. Reduce the speed to medium-low and gradually add the flour mixture. Stir in chocolate morsels and nuts.
  5. Drop about 1/8 cup or 2 tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 to 3 inches apart. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake one sheet at a time for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the edge of the cookies turn to a light golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing onto a wire rack for further cooling. ENJOY!
