Super thin and wonderfully crispy, our malted chocolate chip cookies are easy to make and bursting with rich flavor!


  • butter, softened 1 c (230 g)
  • brown sugar 1 c (200 g)
  • granulated sugar ¼ c (50 g)
  • eggs 2 large
  • vanilla extract 1 tsp
  • flour 2 c (240 g)
  • (spooned and leveled*)
  • malted milk powder ½ c (60 g)
  • baking soda 1 tsp
  • salt ½ tsp
  • semi-sweet chocolate, chopped 8 oz (225 g)


  1. Cream the softened butter with the granulated sugar and brown sugar until smooth.
  2. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and continue beating until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the flour, malted milk powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Fold in the chopped chocolate.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C) and line several baking sheets with parchment paper.
  8. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, portion the dough out into balls (approximately 2 tablespoons of dough each) and place them on the prepared baking sheets 2 inches (5 cm) apart. They will flatten as they cook.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 10 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.


Spooned and leveled: Scooping a measuring cup into a flour container can result in much more flour than intended, which can affect the success of your cookies. To get a more accurate measurement, use a spoon to lightly scoop flour into the measuring cup until it’s completely full. Then run the back of a knife over the cup to gently scrape off any excess.
