Mad Malted Cookies

I'm not spamming tonight, honest. I just realized I forgot to share the recipe for the cookies that got made today.

Yes, I've started my cookie testing for Christmas 2005. This is actually the second new recipe I've tried, but I didn't care for how the first came out so that's why you didn't hear about it. :) This one seems to be good enough to repeat occasionally, so that's why I'm putting it here.

Mad Malted Cookies

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 cup chocolate-flavor malted milk powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup chocolate-flavor malted milk powder
2-3 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup malted milk ball candies, crushed

1. Heat oven to 350F. Grease cookie sheet(s) and set aside.
2. Beat brown sugar, butter, and eggs in large bowl until well blended.
3. Stir in flour, malted milk powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
4. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2" apart onto cookie sheet. These do spread a little, but generally retain the shape you drop them in.
5. Bake 12-15 minutes or until edges are set.
6. Cool 1 minute, then remove to wire rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
7. To make glaze: combine all glaze ingredients except for candies until smooth and spreadable. Stir in candies until completely mixed in.
8. Spread glaze over cookies.

This makes a cake-like cookie, depending on how thin you make it. The cookie itself isn't that sweet and was really nice with a cup of coffee tonight, but the glaze *is* sweet. It's too sweet for my tastes, but my kids and Craig loved it. Alicia even licked the glaze bowl.
