Chocolate Malted Cookies

Yield

Makes about 4 dozen cookies

Ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1-3/4 cups powdered sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup malted milk powder, divided
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Preparation

  1. Beat butter, shortening, 3/4 cup powdered sugar and vanilla in large bowl. Add flour, 1/2 cup malted milk powder and cocoa until well blended. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Shape slightly mounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls; place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Meanwhile, combine remaining 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 cup malted milk powder in medium bowl. Remove cookies to wire racks; cool 5 minutes. Roll cookies in powdered sugar mixture.

Tip

Substitute 6 ounces melted semisweet chocolate for the 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 cup malted milk powder used to roll the cookies. Instead, dip cookies in melted chocolate and let dry on wire racks until coating is set.
