For your consideration: Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops from Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, page 85, featured this week on Tuesdays with Dorrie.
These were interesting cookies. I had several “Aha!” moments while making them
1. Aha! Ovaltine original is not the same as malted milk powder – it has “sugar” listed as the first of many ingredients. Nestle/Carnation’s Malted Milk has “wheat flour and malted barley extracts” as the first ingredient(s).
2. Aha! My countertops are not level.
3. Cool... Mt. Malted Milk.
4. Aha! I adore my sideswipe paddle more and more every time I use it.
5. must. use. up. these. stupid. chips. (no, I just can’t just throw them away, that would be wasteful.)
6. dough! (DOH!) or is it batter?
7. yee ha! scooper’s back in the saddle again.
8. I’m ready for my close-up now, Mr. DeMille.
9. A Whopper of a Whopper Cookie boomerang. Aha! Shoulda used wax paper in between for storing.
Despite the big hunk o’ cookie later, these were good. I did peel the pretty ones off the top and share them with school. Remember – they love treats!
