  9. **The batter will look more like frosting than cookie dough.**.
  10. Put mixer on low or mix by hand the malt balls and the chocolate chips/chunks or whatever you are using. I prefer doing this by hand.
  11. Drop by rounded teaspoons 2" apart.
  12. Bake for 11-13 minutes, when cookies are done they will be puffed and slightly soft to the touch.

These cookies are great if you're a chocolate lover. I first found the recipe in "Baking From my Home to Yours" by Dorie Greenspan. A huge hit.

I actually came across this recipe for the first time at a cookie making class that I recently took. I loved it so much I was searching on-line for a picture to add it to my personal cookbook of favorite recipes and I came across this same version. This is really a fantastic cookie! I LOVE malt and this is one of the best uses of malt in a cookie that I have found!

This is certainly one for the kids, they just loved them! I guess the fact that they are toothachingly sweet helps a bit !!
