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 🙂
