Yes, I know it's not Monday....but as I stated in my last post....time just ran out! So, welcome to Gooseberry Patch Galore Monday....on Wednesday!!!!
Today I made GIANT CHOCOLATE MALT COOKIES
and let me tell you that are scrumptious!! I decided not to make them quite as GIANT as suggested in the recipe. As soon as the last batch is baked a few cookies will be heading out to the field to be enjoyed as we combine our sunflowers. :)
GIANT CHOCOLATE MALT COOKIES
1 c. butter-flavor shortening
1 1/4/ c. brown sugar, packed
1/2 c. malted milk powder
2 T. chocolate syrup
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chunks
1 c. milk chocolate chips
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; mix at medium speed with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Add egg; ix well and set aside.
Stir together flour, soda and salt; add shortening mixture, mixing well. Fold in chocolate. Shape into 1/2 -cup balls; press down to form 3 1/2-inch round discs. Arrange 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 8 cookies. **Note I just made these cookies in regular size--they still taste great...just smaller!! ***
