This “Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies” recipe is a really old one, and I believe it comes from Crisco. It’s a little bit different in that it calls for shortening and chocolate syrup, but the end result is a good cookie with a crunchy texture and interesting flavor. For the malted milk powder, I use Carnation brand which comes in a red and white canister. A brand called Horlick’s would also work.
