Strawberry Malt Cookies

Posted on 03 September 2019

These cheery cookies will brighten any lunchbox, especially necessary in these first few weeks of the new school year! Toasty malt flavor from our Malted Milk Extract adds depth to a classic sugar cookie and a splash of our Strawberry Extract brings back warm summer memories while just a few drops of Natural Ruby Red Food Color gives our creamy frosting a pale pink hue that hints at its strawberry flavor. Makes enough for a week of lunchtime treats for the whole family, school-aged or not!
