Mini malted milk shortbread cookies. Pack them in small glass jars, reminiscent of the candy malted milk tablets of long ago.
  • ½ c. salted butter, slightly softened
  • ¼ c. sugar
  • ¼ c. Horlick's malt powder
  • 2 T. nonfat powdered milk
  • ¾ c. + 1 T. flour
  • In addition:
  • For Chocolate malt cookies, add 2 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
  1. Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix by hand, using your fingers to rub the butter into the dry ingredients. Keep blending and squishing until a well mixed dough forms.
  3. Cut the dough into eight equal portions. Roll each portion out into a log with a diameter about the size of a dime. Cut the log into ½" pieces. Place pieces cut side down onto a shiny baking sheet. Press each piece down slightly while rounding the edges and forming as round a circle shape as possible. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  4. Bake at 300 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, until just done. Watch them closely towards the end so they don't overbrown. Remove cookies from the hot baking sheet onto a cooling rack or a cool baking sheet so the bottoms don't continue to cook. Cool completely.
  5. Use chopsticks to arrange cookies in small glass bottles that can be covered with lids. Keep tightly covered.
