A small twist on a classic cookie.

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup peanut butter (heaping)

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon malted milk powder

2 tablespoons milk

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Cream sugar, butter, peanut butter and malted milk powder until smooth. Add egg, milk, vanilla and mix for another minute. Fold in dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Fold in chips.

Place small scoopfuls onto a lined baking sheet and sprinkle sugar on top. Press the tines of a fork in a criss-cross pattern. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
