Tell Me More About These Cookies
For those who are unfamiliar with these cookies, they are:
- Mini bite-size cookies
- Super crunchy and crisp all throughout
- Have caramelized flavor
Be warned, though, that they are so addictive! It is easy to just pop one after the other into your mouth until you have lost track of how many you have eaten.
These Famous Amos Style Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies have a slightly special ingredient, which is malted milk powder. Malted milk powder is a dried powder made from malted barley, wheat flour, sugar, and milk. This powder was commonly used as a nutritious treat as it is high in calories as well as vitamins and minerals. Adding malted milk powder to baked goods imparts a toasty caramelized and nutty flavor. It gives an extra umami flavor!
This recipe Makes a Lot of Cookies
These cookies are so tiny that they make hundreds of cookies. I like to make a full batch and keep some portioned, unbaked cookie dough in the freezer for those times you need a little something sweet to share to enjoy yourself.
You will want to use mini chocolate chips here for the full mini effect. Regular chocolate chips would overwhelm these little cookies. If you only have regular chocolate chips or even chocolate discs or bars, try chopping them into smaller pieces to simulate the size of mini chips.
Portion these cookies into third-quarter teaspoon balls. I use a teaspoon scoop to portion the dough for these cookies. I always recommend using the measuring spoon to get consistent sizing to help make sure that they all bake evenly.
