Malt Chocolate Chip Cookies (30-36)
Time: 25mins Prep and Bake

 This recipe was adapted from Pioneer Woman.

- 2 sticks of Unsalted Butter (Softened)
- 3/4c and 1 tbsp of Brown Sugar
- 3/4c White Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tsp Vanilla
- 2c Flour
- 1 1/4tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2c Malted Milk Powder
- 1 Bag of Semisweet Chocolate Chips
- Pinch of Salt

  1.  Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream your butter and sugars, add your vanilla, and eggs.
  3. Add your Malt to the mixture.
  4. Sift the flour with baking soda and salt.
  5. Slowly mix in the flour to the bowl.
  6. Gently fold in your chocolate chips. 
  7. Make teaspoon sized balls or use a cookie scoop and space them out on the cookie sheet. They will spread a little.
  8. Bake for 7-10mins.  Bake time is based on your oven, but mine worked best at 7-8mins, the 10mins were a little too crispy for me.
  9. Enjoy and save a few for Santa!

What was your adaptation? I saw this one of Food Network?

Hey Hampton Roads Foodie, there's just an adjustment in the salt, chocolate chips, and cook time. Nothing too major, but it had too much salt for my liking. I adjusted the time as well, 10mins made them too crispy for my liking. Hope you post your ginger molasses cookies!
