Tuesdays with Dorie~ Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops



I'm going to post this one ON TIME, so as not to continue getting more and more behind! This weeks selection for TUESDAYS WITH DORIE comes from Rachel of Confessions of a Tangerine Tart. When I saw the title of the recipe she chose, my jaw dropped. This sounded INCREDIBLE!

I can safely say I've never made a cookie with Whoppers in it, or using Malted Milk powder...I don't think I perfected this recipe this time around, I need to make it another time or two to figure out a few things. My cookies came out a bit flatter than I had hoped, and am not sure why...The photo in Dorie's book is stunning and they are big, thick, fat cookies. So, I'll try these again soon after I visit all the other TWD'er's blogs and get an idea of what I may have done to have big flat pancakey whopper cookies. They were DELICIOUS flat Whopper cookies, so that was good news.



Head on over to Rachel's blog to get the recipe and check out the TWD Blogroll for more awesome Malted Drops! I'll be right back with belated TWD editions (Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream and Granola Grabbers! New computer in full effect!)...

you know, it's the "delicious" part that really matters, anyway! baking is so mysterious sometimes.

Oooh your cookies look oh so gooey and delicious!

Engineer Baker said...

Wow, yours spread even more than mine did. I wonder if a quick trip into the fridge would help that? Oh darn, another batch you have to make :)

Christine said...

Have fun with the new computer. Cookies look delicious!

Glad you liked the cookies. Perfecting them is the best part! Good job catching up on all your TWD posts.

It's not about the size/shape of the cookie! Some guys like their cookies thin as a rail, and some guys like their cookies with some booty. But in the words of a twentieth century genius, "S'allllll good!" They look delicious.

How come yours are so much darker and more rich looking than mine? Do I have access to inferior chocolate? I was pleased to see yours were extra-moist, too, since I just assumed my own moistness was a miracle of the humid armpit that is Southern Texas.

Karen said...

Thanks for visiting! :) Yours look great too! Doesn't matter if they are flat as long as they taste good right?

Cathy said...

I got flat cookies as well. But also delicious, flat cookies, so I guess I'll hold onto that for now. If you ever figure out what causes the flatness, let me know -- this is a chronic problem for me! Yours don't look overly flat, though. They are pretty pretty pretty!!

Pamela said...

They did come out flatter than the picture, and that disappointed me, too. But at least they tasted good.

Even flat, I'm sure they were delicious!

Teanna said...

The brownie bites, ice cream, and whopper drops ALL look amazing! You've been quite the baker/ice cream maker!

Jaime said...

not sure why yours flattened out? glad they were still delicious :) maybe the extra whoppers i added gave them the needed volume to stay thick?

Jules Someone said...

I'm with you. I need to make these a few more times to really get them right....

SUGAR BETTY said...

Your cookies look cakey and delicious! Good job! :)

Barbara said...

Mine turned out thicker -- maybe because I put them into the freezer for 20 minutes or so after shaping and before baking?

They were good!
