Cookie Recipe #173 - Malted Milk Cookie Tart
Today's cookie looks like a pie, but tastes like a cookie. A 9" diameter tart pan with a removable bottom is what the recipe calls for, but a buttered 9" glass pie dish works just as well.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup malted milk powder, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspooon coarse kosher salt, 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1 inch pieces, room temperature, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup malted milk balls, coarsely chopped.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In processor, pulse flour, malted milk powder, sugar and coarse salt. Add butter; pulse until moist clumps form. Transfer dough to work surface; gather into ball. Press evenly onto bottom of tart pan or glass pie dish.
Bake in preheated 325 degree oven until evenly golden brown, about 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven and scatter chocolate chips over pan; let stand 5 minutes to soften, then spread melted chocolate over hot crust in well that forms as center sinks. Sprinkle chopped malted milk balls over top. Cool completely; cut into wedges and enjoy.
Makes 16 cookie wedges.
