These cookies are the next best thing to a good old-fashioned malted milk. With malted milk powder, chocolate syrup plus chocolate chips, these cookies are among the best I've had. Yum yum! The ingredients:
1 cup butter flavored shortening (Crisco)
1-1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup malted milk powder
2 Tbs. chocolate syrup
1 Tbs. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chunks
1 cup milk chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, combine the first five ingredients; beat for 2 minutes. Add egg. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chunks and chips.
Shape into 2-in balls; place 3 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack. Yields about 18 cookies.
