Last summer I was thinking about all of those cookies with potato chips and stuff in them. I thought, well I think malt balls and pretzels would taste great in cookies. Thus were born, in my opinion, some of the best cookies ever. I posted them to my blog and random strangers also agree, some of the best cookies ever. I know the ingredients are weird and some hard to find but the malt powder and graham flour make a really special texture. The only trick with these cookies is that they burn really easily so check on them frequently. —OB Cookie
