Malt in a Cookie

I was inspired by for journey into "Oz" yet cookies are really hard to make Oz-worthy. The only thing in these cookies that would work for that was whole wheat pastry flour. I didn't write down what I did exactly and it's been a while, so I hope this is right! I'll try to make these again soon and make sure that this works! I'll let you know...or, it you try them, you can let me know! :-) These are a peanut butter chip malt cookie. I think they're pretty good, so it's worth the risk. Peanut Butter Chip Malt Cookies
1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup malt powder
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup toasted, chopped pecans Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream margarine and sugars together. Add egg and vanilla and malt powder. Mix. Add dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Stir in chips. Place by teaspoonfuls on baking stone or cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake. Allow to cool for a minute before removing to cooling rack.

I love the flavor of malt, but I've never tried it in peanut butter cookies. Those sound great. There's a malted chocolate chip recipe floating around. Have you tried that one?

Peabody - Thanks! I really need to make them again so I can be sure of the recipe.

Anna - It was pretty good. I have tried a chocolate malt whoppers cookie but not the malted chocolate chip cookie. The others were pretty good, though.
