Tuesdays with Dorie DC: Coffee Malteds

I love the flavor of malt and I also love coffee, so needless to say, these Coffee Malteds were a hit with me. But while I do love malt, I usually can’t seem to get through an entire container of malted milk powder, so I decided not to go out and buy it just for one recipe. I do happen to have a jar of malt syrup in my fridge, so I added a bit of that instead. I used way less than the 1/4 cup of powder in the recipe– just a spoonful since the flavor is so much more powerful, and since it’s a liquid ingredient instead of a dry. I didn’t get the crumbly dough that the recipe indicated, and I’m guessing it was because of the malt syrup. My dough was a little sticky, so I just gave it a good chill before baking it off. I didn’t worry about it too much…I’ve found that if I am confident that my dough will become cookies or my batter will become cake, then it almost always does (and if it doesn’t, it’s because I’ve really screwed up.)
