Malted Chocolate Cookies

Malted Cookies

This was written in January and never posted – doh!

I went internet grocery shopping for the first time! I’m not sure about the whole thing and will probably not do it again unless I’m really crunched for time and/or snow bound. I loved that all my hard to find items (malt powder!) were nestled in my bag, but I wasn’t thrilled with the substitutions of hard to find items that my grocer picker couldn’t find. Catch 22! It’s awesome that you can either have it delivered to your doorstep for $5 or pick it up at the store for free! I do recommend that everyone give it a try. For now, John and I will go Saturday mornings, after our workout at the Y, when Cub is quiet and oh so easy to navigate.
