Recipe: Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies + Variations!

This is my go-to recipe for some delicious cookies! My family always requests me to bake some every now and then. The original recipe was one from Mrs. Field's Cookbook but I tweaked it a bit. What's great is that you can make variations simply by adding different flavouring to it. I'll give some of my best variations at the end of the post, but this one using Ovaltine is my classic! I wouldn't have discovered this recipe if it wasn't for a dear undergrad housemate... you know who you are. ;)


Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Servings:
~ 2-3 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup Ovaltine powder (malted chocolate drink powder)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 cup salted butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons condensed milk
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (you can adjust this amount if you want more or less)

How to make:

1. Preheat oven to 300° F.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, Ovaltine powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well and set aside. 
3. In a big bowl, mix the white and brown sugar together.
4. Slightly melt the butter in a bowl using the microwave. Add the butter to the big bowl and mix.
5. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, and condensed milk to the big bowl. Mix well until the mixture is light and fluffy.
6. Add the flour mixture and the chocolate chips to the big bowl and mix at low speeds until just combined. Don't overmix. 
7. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet about 1.5 inches apart. 
8. Bake for 24-25 minutes. 
9. Transfer cookies immediately onto a cool surface. 

I kind of want to bake these again now. 

Here are some variations!


- Add 1 tablespoon matcha powder, cut down 1/4 cup of the Ovaltine powder, cut out the chocolate chips, and sprinkle some icing sugar to make green tea cookies (pictured above :D). 
- Use white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts to make white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.
- Instead of using Ovaltine powder, use Horlick powder (malted vanilla drink powder) to make vanilla cookies.
- Instead of chocolate chips, you can add cranberries or raisins to add some fruity taste.
- Make triple chocolate cookies by using 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 cup Ovaltine powder, and different kinds of chocolate chips. 

Enjoy those cookies! If you do make variations, snap me a picture! 

Until next time, Des
