Peanut Butter & Maltose Cookies

Today I am sharing you a unique cookie recipe. It’s unique to me as this was my first time ever using maltose!

I was shopping at Chinatown in Somerset, Ottawa and spotted jars of maltose. I grabbed one as I remembered seeing a recipe somewhere using maltose, although I did not quite remember of what exactly * lol *

For sure I couldn’t find the recipe I thought I remembered reading, but I really wanted to try using maltose.

The following recipe was using honey and/or corn syrup, and so I thought maybe I could substitute it with maltose.

Happy they turned up pretty good!

Maltose is a bit tricky to work with. If it gets too sticky to work with the maltose while using your mixer, take it out from the bowl; you can work it with your hand while kneading the batter.
