Malted milk cookie tart. A buttery, malted milk cookie crust topped with chocolate and malted milk balls. The dessert of champions!
Kitchenaid Food Processor, oh how I love you. Let me count the ways...
Seriously, if my rents weren't so good at making the holidays rock, I'd say best present ever - but really, they have made sure we always have awesome presents.
However, I do <3 my beautiful red 7 cup food processor a lot. Today it will come in handy over 3 times, slicing and dicing my prep time for this malted milk cookie tart down to nothing but a few quick pulses. Someday I will have the stand mixer to match... someday....
Malted Milk Cookie Tart
- 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup malted milk powder
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon (scant) coarse kosher salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces, room temperature
- ½ cup bittersweet chocolate chips (about 3 ounces; do not exceed 61% cacao)
- ½ cup malted milk balls, coarsely chopped
Bake crust until evenly golden brown, about 45 minutes. Scatter chocolate chips over; let stand 5 minutes to soften, then spread melted chocolate over hot crust in well that forms as center sinks. Sprinkle malted milk balls over. Cool completely. Remove tart from pan; cut into wedges.
The tart shell only took 30 minutes in my oven so please watch it carefully. The sides also bubbled over a bit (thank god I forgot about that other pan just chilling in there. And yes, I am giggling at the use of the word chilling in refence to an oven at this point).
I didn't have bittersweet chocolate chips around, so I used my food processor to break down some baking squares. I also recommend putting the whoppers in the freezer while the tart bakes and throwing them in for a few quick pulses to break them up for the topping.
