I (heart) Pioneer Woman

Have you discovered Pioneer Woman's blog yet? Oh my goodness she is a hoot and while you're there read her love story of how she and "Marlboro Man" met and fell in love-Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. A couple of paragraphs and you will be hooked!  Anyway she has tons of wonderful recipes I have yet to try anything of hers that isn't good. So the other day she posted a recipe for malted milk chocolate chip cookies and I was immediately intrigued because I am in LOVE with a thin chewy cookie. I tried them and here are my results
Oh my...look at that thin chewy goodness!
They have a mild flavor with almost a toffee consistency to them
The kids loved them and Tim even liked them!

Here is the recipe compliments of Pioneer Woman 

Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 cup (2 Sticks) Unsalted Butter Softened
  • ¾ cups Golden Brown Sugar
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cups (rounded) Malted Milk Powder
  • 1 bag (12 Ounce) Milk Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter, then add both sugars and cream until fluffy. Add eggs and beat slightly, then 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.
Drop by teaspoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Bake less if you want chewy cookies; more if you want crispy cookies.
