TWD: Another week, another cookie recipe


As I mentioned in my last post, this week's TWD pick is yet another cookie with a mouthful of a name - Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops. Just reading through the ingredient list of this cookie made my mouth water, literally. Filled with maltesers, chocolate chunks and malted milk powder, all flavours that I love, what's not to like?

Like most cookie recipes, this one was pretty easy to put together so I managed to do this in-between cooking dinner on Sunday night. The only slightly unusual thing about this recipe is the consistency of the batter, which as Dorie notes in her book, is more like a fudge or frosting texture than that of a traditional cookie dough. Having read the warning in the book, though, I wasn't concerned with the look of my batter.

As the cookies were baking in the oven, M caught a whiff of them and asked what we were having for dinner. When I told him cookies (jokingly of course) his response was "Sweet! Cookies for dinner." I don't think he was joking by the way. M has one of the sweetest tooths of any guy I know. Lucky for me since I need help devouring all the treats that TWD has me making!

All through dinner, both M and myself were thinking of the sumptious pile of cookies on the cookie rack and it was with incredible restraint that we managed to finish our dinner first being diving into the cookies. The verdict? I thought the cookie was nice and chocolately and I liked the chewiness of the maltesers in them. To be honest, I wasn't a great fan of the cakey texture of the cookie though - I would have preferred something with a bit more crisp in it. As such, of all the cookie recipes that TWD has done recently, the Granola Grabbers are still my hands down favourite. I just read next week's TWD pick however, and it looks like there's one more cookie recipe for next week. Stay tuned to see if it has what it takes to knock the Granola Grabbers off its throne.

I liked these cookies quite a bit, but I thought they were chewy, cakey,and crunchy at the same time! Is that possible? :)

Mine definitely had zero crunch to them, but I hate crunchy cookies. And cookies for dinner sound like just the thing :)

I'm all for cookies for dinner! Yours look nice and lumpy and bumpy! Very tempting.

No crunch in these cookies. But the flavors just won me over. Yours look great!

I didn't like the cakey texture either...or the fact that you couldn't taste the malt in the dough after it was baked.

The DeL Sisters said...

Ha! I love your story!

Sorry you wern't too much of a fan, but, I don't blame you. I don't like malt, so it wasn't quite my thing either!

I was really excited about these cookies too. I enjoyed them, but they didn't come out to be anything that I expected. I love a little crunch too... maybe next week.

SUGAR BETTY said...

Ha! All of my co workers loved the Grabbers more so than these. But taste buds do differ. I loved these! Good job!

Amy said...

Oh, just add milk and I would totally do cookies for dinner. Maybe that is what we should have tomorrow night.

I hear what you're saying because I did love the Granola Grabbers, but in my mind the Granola Grabbers are my favorite "oatmeal cookie" and these babies are my favorite "chocolate cookie". I've got room in my heart for lots of favorites, you see! ;-)
