Happy Friday! Things are getting more holiday-hectic every week, but fortunately all that really means is I’m baking even more than usual, so it’s easy to keep up here 🙂 I’ve done a few recipes in a row that weren’t cookies… that justifies continuing the cookie mania, right?
My boyfriend is a huge fan of Malt Ovaltine, so when I came across a few recipes that included the Ovaltine mix, I knew I had to try something out on my own! These cookies are very much like sugar cookies, but with a hint of chocolately malt Ovaline. Simple, sweet, chewy, and perfect!
You will need:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
½ cup Malt Ovaltine
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 large egg
White sparkling sugar sprinkles (optional, and as always, encouraged :))
Pre-heat your oven to 375. Start off by beating together your butter, sugar, and Ovaltine. Once combined, add your egg, and mix. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to wet mixture, and combine completely.
If you’re using the sparkling sugar sprinkles, pour some into a bowl for rolling. Spoon out rounded tablespoons of cookie dough, roll it into a ball, and roll it in the sugar. Place each cookie on an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart (they will definitely spread this much!), and slightly flatten them. Bake for about 10 minutes, until they are a little crispy around the edges. Allow them to sit for a few minutes, and move to a wire rack to cool completely.
I’m really impressed by how the Ovaltine isn’t overpowering in the cookies, and really just adds a little something sweet to your classic sugar cookie 🙂
