even though i’ve had no work today in observance of labor day, i’ve been quite productive. i caught up on sleep, cleaned up the house, did laundry, ran to the grocery store, and wrote some wonderful posts for you lovely people. i also got domestic and baked some homemade malted milk chocolate chip cookies. they’re one of my favorites, and they’re even better when you dollop on a huge scoop of ice cream and freeze them for your own sandwiches. quite delicious!
here’s the recipe for all you bakers out there:
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup golden brown sugar
3/4 cups white sugar
2 whole eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup malted milk powder
12 ounces milk chocolate chips
preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
cream butter with electric mixer.
add both sugars and cream until fluffy.
add eggs and beat lightly.
add vanilla and beat until combined.
add malted milk powder and beat until combined.
sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. add to butter mixture, beating gently until just combined.
add chocolate chips and stir in gently with spatula.
drop by tablespoon-fuls and bake 11-12 minutes.
