  • “DELICIOUS!I am very fond of malt flavoring and will actually add more next time.Perhaps cut back on flour a bit and replace with malted milk powder….?At any rate, they are outstanding cookies!Thanks, Laura!!!”

  • “This is a great cookie! I usually prefer soft cookies, but this cookie is so flavorful, I’ve been won over! I did decrease the flour amount to 2 1/2 cups and increase the malt powder to 3/4 cup, for extra malt flavor. A winner!”
