Chocolate Malted Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter flavored vegetable shortening (like Crisco) 1 1/4 cups brown sugar-firmly packed 1/2 cup malted milk powder (like Ovaltine) 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup 1 tbsp vanilla extract 1 large egg 1 cup (4 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips 1 cup (4 oz.) milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine the shortening, brown sugar, malted milk powder, chocolate syrup and vanilla. Using an electric mixer, beat 2 minutes, then add the egg and beat for a second or two, until mixed. Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, mixing well between additions. Stir in chocolate chips.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls of dough onto cookie sheet, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Don't over-bake them or they'll be hard as a rock.
Yield: about 40 cookies
