      Malted Sugar Cookies

      INGREDIENTS:

      • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
      • 3/4 cup malted milk powder (not chocolate)
      • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
      • 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
      • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
      • 1 large egg
      • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
      • 1 1-pound box confectioners’ sugar
      • 2 tablespoons meringue powder
      • Gel food coloring
      • Sanding sugar, for decorating

      INSTRUCTIONS:

      1- Whisk the flour, malted milk powder and baking powder in a medium bowl. Beat the butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Reduce the mixer speed to low; add the flour mixture in 2 batches and beat until just incorporated. Divide the dough between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; shape each into a disk. Wrap and refrigerate until firm, 1 hour or overnight.

      2- Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Working with 1 disk at a time, roll out the dough on a floured surface until 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies with 2- to 3-inch cookie cutters; arrange about 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets. Reroll the scraps once and cut out more cookies. Freeze until firm, 5 to 10 minutes.

      3- Bake, switching the pans halfway through, until the cookies are golden around the edges, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool completely.

      4- Make the royal icing: Whisk the confectioners’ sugar and meringue powder in a large bowl. Add 5 tablespoons water; beat with a mixer on medium-high speed until soft glossy peaks form, adding up to 1 more tablespoon water if necessary. Tint as desired with food coloring. Spread or pipe on the cookies. Sprinkle with sanding sugar. Let set, 1 hour. Go to page 242 for decorating tips.

      Enjoy!
