Malt Ovaltine Sugar Cookies

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 🙂

    (I realize I’m commenting on an 8-year-old post.) I came across the recipe thanks to Pinterest in an attempt to use up Ovaltine that we had in the house. These cookies are SO GOOD! This will absolutely be my go-to cookie recipe. Thanks!!
