Another Keeper

Yesterday would have been my Meme’s 96th birthday.  I’ve written about her here and here.  As a way of keeping their memories alive I always make certain foods on my loved ones birthdays / aniversaries / etc.  Normally I’d do some chicken fried steak in her honor but I just don’t have the energy for that right now so I stuck with chocolate chip cookies.  And let me tell y’all…they were fabulous.  🙂

These weren’t just any old cookies.  They were malted milk chocolate chip cookies. Recipe at the end of post.

The tan-ish color stuff is the malted milk powder.  I’d never used it before.

Forget what I said on Monday about making the apple dumplings right away.  Make THESE right now. They were so delicious.  And I think made a perfect tribute to my Meme.  🙂

Along with my love of cookies, chicken fried and cooking in general she was also 100% responsible for my love of Elvis.   Happy Birthday, Meme.  You were the very best. 🙂

Sift together flour, malted milk powder, baking soda, and salt.
