Recipe Ingredients for choc malt cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup ovaltine
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons hot water
10 oz chocolate
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup ovaltine
3 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for choc malt cookies

  1. To make the cookies:

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  3. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, malted milk powder, baking soda, and salt. With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy. Mix in egg, creme fraiche, and hot water. Reduce speed to low; mix in flour mixture.

  4. Space tablespoon-size balls of dough 3 1/2 inches apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake until flat and just firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on parchment on wire racks.

  5. To make the filling:

  6. While the cookies are baking, melt chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simming water, stirring. Let cool. With an electric mixer, beat malted milk powder and cream cheese on medium speed until smooth. Gradually mix in half-and-half, chocolate mixture, and vanilla. Refrigerate, covered, until thick, about 30 minutes. Beat on high speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. After chilling, the filling will be very thick and dark but as soon as you start to beat it, the color will begin to lighten and the filling will become very fluffy.

  7. To assemble the cookies:

  8. Match up cookies of similar sizes into pairs. Using a tablespoon-size cookie scoop, scoop a heaping tablespoon of the filling onto the bottom of one cookie. Sandwich with another cookie until the filling pushes to the edges of the cookies. Repeat with remaining pairs of cookies. Cookies can be kept at room temperature between layers of parchment in airtight containers up to 3 days.
