All Grown-Up Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

All Grown-Up Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (Adapted from COPIA)

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/8 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
16 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup Lyle's Golden Syrup
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate malted milk powder
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
16 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips

Preheat to 375

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt baking powder and baking soda.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until combined. Add golden syrup and beat until creamy. Mix in the egg, vanilla, malted milk powder and espresso powder. Add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop heaping tablespoons worth of dough onto parchment lined baking sheet and bake until the edges are golden, but the center still looks a little under done, about 9 to 11 minutes. Remove and place the baking sheet on a wire rack to cool for at least 10 minutes before removing the cookies to cool completely.

Makes about 36 cookies.

  1. Chocolate malted milk powder... like Ovaltine? A quarter-cup is a lot, so I don't want to screw it up. I found regular malted milk powder - could I do some substitution with that and cocoa?

  2. Jami - you could use Ovaltine if you can't find the Carnation brand. I wouldn't add cocoa - you could just as well use the plain malted milk powder too.

  3. hi, i was wondering how you would modify this recipe for plain cookies, because my partner doesnt like chocolate..

  4. Anon - you could use regular, plain malted milk powder and maybe add some nuts instead of the chocolate chips?

  5. Don't use ovaltine. If you can't find malt-powder, leave it out. You can also subsitite corn syrup for the golden syrup. Make this a plain cookie by leaving out the chocolate chips.
